Emergency Communications

In an effort to relay information to students, faculty and staff in an event of an emergency, UCA utilizes the following methods to deliver emergency notification and information:

  • UCAAlert Mass Notification System
    The UCAAlert System is used to send emergency notifications to the campus community via text message, voice message and e-mail. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to provide their contact information through the myUCA portal by logging in and following the instructions in the "Update UCAAlert Contact Info" channel.
  • UCA Website
    Information will be posted and updated as needed on the UCA main web page during an emergency.
  • Safe@UCA Info Line
    The University of Central Arkansas Police Department has established a 24-hour emergency information hotline. Call the Safe@UCA Info Line at (501) 852-INFO (4636) to hear a recorded message about the status of the University and any current alert or safety information. During emergency situations or closures the message will be updated periodically.
  • Safe@UCA E-mail Listserv
    Parents, visitors, neighbors, or students who may not check their official UCA email accounts often may subscribe to the Safe@UCA email listserv with their personal email address via the UCA PD Web site.
  • UCAAlert Outdoor Warning System
    This is an outdoor tone alert/public address system designed to alert persons outside of campus buildings of an emergency situation on campus.
