DartAlert is part of a campus-wide communications plan that Dartmouth will be utilizing in the event of an emergency.

In the event of an emergency, all Dartmouth-administered, land-line telephones will receive an automated message, and all Dartmouth email accounts will receive a notification with brief details and instructions regarding the emergency.

Dartmouth departments are working with managers and supervisors to ensure that they notify their staff – those who don't have their own work stations, computers or work phones – through direct personal contact. Two-way radios already in use in some departments, as well as other direct communication methods, are being considered to ensure that all employees receive emergency information.
We test the DartAlert system regularly and appreciate any feedback about the tests. Pay attention to the Dartmouth homepage, this website and your Dartmouth inbox for notices about upcoming tests.
