Emergency Notification System

Rivier University has implemented an emergency notification system, powered by Everbridge (National Notification Network). The system allows the University to send emergency notification messages to all registered faculty, staff, and students during a crisis, emergency or weather closure.

Log-in to the Everbridge System: http://www.everbridge.com or http://www.everbridge.net.

Registration Process

The registration process for the Everbridge system is quick and easy. Invitations will be sent to all unregistered faculty, staff, and students at the start of each semester, via your Rivier email account. For new employees, an invitation will be sent shortly after you begin employment. Adjunct faculty must request an invitation. The sender of the message is: Rivier University membership@everbridge.net

If you need to have your invitation resent, please contact David Bedard in the Office of Information Technology at dbedard@rivier.edu. Follow the instructions in the email invitation to register for the system. Review the information below for some helpful registration tips.

You can also use rivieralerts@rivier.edu to request that you not be enrolled in the system any longer.

You can update your Everbridge profile as often as you like, and should do so each time your contact numbers change. Be sure to keep this information current at all times. You can easily update your information by logging into the Everbridge system.

When will the system be used?
The emergency notification system will be used during a crisis or emergency, and will be used to communicate closings of the University due to inclement weather. The system is secure and personal information is private and will not be shared.

Testing of the system
The system will be tested at a minimum of once each semester. You will receive notice of scheduled tests through your Rivier e-mail account and via the Rivier University website.

What can you expect when the Emergency Notification System is used during an emergency or weather closure?
All registered users will receive messages to the numbers/email accounts that are registered with the system. The emergency notification will be sent to each of your phones/emails until you confirm receipt. You can confirm the following ways:

• Phone Calls: Remain on the line until you are asked to enter a “1” to confirm receipt.
• Text messages: Follow the instructions at the end of the text message to reply with your confirmation.
• Emails: Click the link in the body of the email to confirm receipt.

The system will continue cycling through your registered devices until you successfully confirm receipt.
