USC Upstate’s Emergency Notification System (SpartAlert) is a mass notification system that enables students, parents, faculty and staff to receive critical information and updates via text messages to cell phones, e-mail accounts and on-campus Cisco IP speaker phones when unexpected circumstances arise that pose a threat of imminent danger.
SpartAlert is used in combination with other communication channels such as electronic signage, a coordinated use of public media outlets and a 24-hour recorded Emergency Hotline, (864) 503-5599.
