The RISD!ALERT emergency notification system uses e-mail, text and push notifications via the LiveSafe mobile safety app to send time-sensitive information to students, faculty and staff members.

To ensure that you receive the information you need in the event of a campus emergency, we encourage the use of all three notification methods:

Email Notifications
RISD e-mail addresses are automatically enrolled in the system.

SMS Text Message Notifications
RISD students, faculty and staff must designate a cell phone number in Workday to receive text notifications. Here’s how to update your contact information in Workday.

Push Notifications
RISD students, faculty and staff may download the LiveSafe app from the Apple App Store or Google Play and enable push notifications.
