Alertus is the university's primary desktop notification for emergency communications. Agents are installed on most campus desktop systems as part of the default software load. In the event of an emergency, the alert screen will take over and display the message. If there are systems running specialized equipment there can be exceptions made to have the installation blocked and the software removed. If there is a need for this please contact the ITS helpdesk for assistance.
