UC Berkeley WarnMe is the notification system serving the UC Berkeley community. Emergency notifications are sent via the Everbridge platform (previously called Nixle) upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation occurring on the campus that involves an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees. UC Berkeley WarnMe is also used to send timely warnings and community advisories from campus police (UCPD).
UC Berkeley WarnMe is just one part of our alert and warning system that may be used on campus. In case of an actual emergency, the university may also utilize the alert and warning siren system, the university email system, social media, or verbal announcements via public address systems. The university may also post updates during a critical incident on the university homepage. If the situation warrants, the university will establish a telephone call-in center to communicate with the campus community during an emergency situation.
To sign-up to receive the WarnMe communications, please click on this link, there is an option for both UCB Affiliates and Non-UCB Affiliates (this would be for the 501c3 employees): https://warnme.berkeley.edu/
