Eagle Alert

Eagle Alert

Eagle Alert is Cal State LA's emergency notification and safety advisory system. It is used to send Cal State LA Emergency Notifications and Safety Advisories to all students, faculty and staff using the following information delivery methods:

Messages to Cal State LA email addresses
Text messages to mobile phones
Messages to the campus Guardian mobile app

Cal State LA Emergency Notification

Cal State LA Emergency Notifications will be sent when emergency situations arise, such as fires, earthquakes and acts of violence or situations posing an imminent threat to life, health or the safety of our campus community. An emergency notification will only be sent after carefully assessing a situation and determining that it is serious enough to warrant a notification, or to periodically conduct system tests. These messages will be clearly labeled with “Cal State LA Emergency Notification.”

Cal State LA Safety Advisory

Cal State LA Safety Advisories provide information regarding critical situations that do not pose an immediate threat to the life, health or safety of the campus community. These can include water main ruptures, poor air quality and law enforcement incidents that do not pose an immediate threat to life, health or safety. These messages will be clearly labeled with “Cal State LA Safety Advisory.”

The Eagle Alert system is updated monthly with information from the Student Administration and Human Resources systems.

Text messages are typically the best method of communication during an emergency, so we encourage everyone to have a mobile phone number in the Student Administration or Human Resources systems to receive emergency text messages.

When a change to your mobile phone number is made in the Student Administration or Human Resources systems, the change will also update your information in the Eagle Alert system.

Find student instructions for updating your mobile phone number to receive text messages.

Find faculty and staff instructions for updating your mobile phone number to receive text messages.
