Alerts and Advisories

Advisory messages are not life-threatening and may include campus incidents such as a power outage or a water leak. Using active geofence location, advisories target specific areas where an incident is occurring. To receive these advisories, enable location services on your smartphone.

ASU Alerts, life-threatening situations such as a major fire or an armed suspect on campus, are sent via these methods:

  • ASU LiveSafe mobile app.
  • Email to all ASU student, faculty and staff accounts.
  • Text message using the mobile phone numbers listed on your My ASU profile.

Alerts are posted on the ASU and ASU Police Facebook pages, the ASU Police Twitter account, and the ASU Emergency webpage followed by specific actions or directions.

Best practices

  1. Make sure to complete the profile with your mobile telephone number, which can help ASU Police better respond to reports. 

  2. Enable Push Notifications in the settings on your phone.

  3. Turn Location Services on. For iPhone, set location services to "Always." GPS data may provide ASU Police a better way to serve and protect you. When you report an incident or make a call, ASU Police will know exactly where you are so they can respond accordingly. Location services also target you for geo-fenced Advisory messages.
