TRU Alert emergency system launched

TRU has implemented an emergency warning system, allowing the university to communicate quickly in an emergency situation with the campus community, and that also includes parents of students.

TRU has implemented an emergency notification and warning system called TRU Alert, which will allow the University to communicate quickly with the campus community in an emergency situation.

TRU ALERT will relay key information to ensure the continued safety of TRU employees and students while keeping the community, including parents, informed.

TRU Alerts will be issued in urgent or emergency situations via personal and TRU devices to inform you of what is happening, where it is happening and what you need to do. In order to receive these alerts on your personal devices you must register with the service.
