Einstein is committed to providing a secure environment for its faculty, staff, postdocs, students and visitors. Toward that goal, Einstein uses the platform Everbridge for disseminating mass notifications during emergencies and when testing the notification system.

Whenever we send an emergency notification through Everbridge, you may receive a combination of e-mail, voice, and text/SMS messages. Each message format includes a receipt confirmation component. Some may contain instructions you need to follow for your safety. By confirming receipt of a particular message, you signal the system to stop sending subsequent attempts to any of your additional contact options. Providing multiple options ensures that we can reach you wherever you may be.

If you have already registered to receive emergency notifications through Everbridge but need to update your contact information, use this link to make your changes.

If you are new to Einstein or have not yet registered with Everbridge, please e-mail emergencyalerts@einstein.yu. to request an invitation to sign up. An e-mail will be sent with the link that will allow you to enter your contact information.

Students and postdocs who have non-Einstein spouses or child caretakers on campus who you wish to be notified in the event of a campus emergency can also e-mail the above address to have those individuals registered with Nixle. This will allow those individuals to receive text messaging that will alert them of any issue on or near campus that we may be communicating about through emergency notifications.

To be sure you can recognize when an emergency notification from Everbridge is sent, we recommend saving “893-61” in your cell phone, and identify it as “Everbridge” or “Emergency Notice.”
