The Connect5 and Audible Siren systems are ASU’s mass notification networks to report
severe weather conditions and emergency warnings.
The Connect5 System is the mass notification emergency warning system by way of the internet. BlackBoard Connect5 is the version that has been upgraded with new technology that allows us to notify everyone registered in the system of any emergency on campus. The system provides warnings of potential weather threats and can send out warnings for all other extreme emergency situations. You can register up to six phone numbers where the system can expand its message reach to Facebook, Twitter, RSS, voice phone calls, or text messages.
The Audible Siren is located on top of the James Pendergrast Library on ASU campus and is manually activated by Police personnel in the event of emergency. This system has severe warning sounds, chimes and voice notification options.
