Emergency Notification System
Emergency messages are sent simultaneously via voicemail, email, text messaging, and computer screen takeover to the emergency contact information on file for each person in the Bowdoin community.
The Bowdoin Emergency Notification System (AppArmor) uses a secure, web-based service to selectively store electronic contact information provided by students, faculty, and staff.
In the event of a campus emergency, the College will alert the Bowdoin community as to the nature of the emergency and provide safety information and instructions. Subsequent messages will be sent as necessary with further instructions and situational updates.
In an urgent but non-life threatening situation, College administrators have the option to deliver a more selective message directly to those listed on-campus telephone numbers, email populations, and/or the community as a whole. These types of message could be power outages, weather closures, parking bans, etc.
To ensure that you receive timely notification of campus emergencies and security alerts, we encourage all members of the campus community to regularly review and update their contact information.
