MUN Safe Alerts is a free service that delivers emergency alerts to Memorial Univesity students, faculty and staff – as well as their friends and family – via the MUN Safe app, social media and/or email accounts during a campus emergency.

MUN SAfe Alert is the most efficient and timely way to receive notifications about critical incidents affecting any of the Memorial University campuses.

If you are affiliated with the Grenfell campus or the Marine Institute,  you can sign up to receive email alerts specific to those campuses as well.

Email alerts are administered by the Office or the Chief Risk Officer and Marketing and Communicaitons, MUN Safe Alert messages will be sent only during Emergency situations and the subscriber list will not be used to distribute any other type of content. 

During a critical incident a series of messages will be sent to notify the community about the situations and provide important information and instructions. When the situation has been resolved, a final “all clear” message will be sent. Memorial Univeristy students, employees and their friends and family are encouraged to check the Gazette, all campus websites and local media reports for other critical updates.
