|ULM welcomes FirstCall to aid campus security|
The University of Louisiana-Monroe this week unveiled a new security feature that will send out emergency alerts to students, faculty and staff during any crisis on campus.
Alerts can be sent via text, voice and e-mail messages.
The security feature of FirstCall Interactive Network is a statewide initiative funded by the Louisiana Board of Regents and supported by the University of Louisiana System.
"Campus security has been a top capital outlay priority at ULM for the past several years," said ULM President James Cofer. "We are always seeking the best technology related to security. With the mass notification capabilities of FirstCall, we're able to add another component to our emergency preparedness."
During an emergency, FirstCall Interactive Network will notify the ULM community through text and voice messages on cell phones and through e-mail messages. The FirstCall system also allows for text-to-voice features that will send messages to landlines and will compliment ULM's existing electronic signage and the ULM homepage, Cofer said.
Currently, ULM students, faculty and staff are registered to receive FirstCall alerts through their ULM-issued e-mail accounts. To best utilize the new alert system, ULM administrators encourage the ULM community to ensure their contact information is accurate and to enter additional contact information, such as an alternate e-mail address, cell and home phone numbers and a phone number for next of kin.
Beginning this week, FirstCall will e-mail all students, faculty and staff with active ULM e-mail accounts, providing them with information about the system and a temporary password, enabling them to submit their cell phone and additional contact information on a secure web site.
The ULM community may only update their information after receiving an initial e-mail from FirstCall.
