About OSU Alerts
OSU-CHS has partnered with CodeRed to implement a service for the OSU-CHS community that will notify people in the case of an emergency. These emergencies may include:
- A campus intruder
- Acts of terrorism
- Biohazard threats
- It is important to note that alerts will not be used for weather-related events unless the situation poses a threat to the lives of people on campus.
In a situation deemed an emergency, OSU-CHS officials will deploy a message to members of the OSU-CHS community with information regarding the event and how they should proceed. This information may be in the form of a voice and/or mobile text.

Will I be charged for text messages?
You will be charged for text messages only if your provider charges for you to receive text messages.
Will my emergency contact information be published?
No, it is only to be used by OSU-CHS for notification of an emergency.
