One of several modes of emergency communication used at UCI, zotALERT is an emergency alert system that uses cell phone text messaging to quickly notify the UCI community with emergency and safety related information. The system will not be used for routine announcements. However, zotALERT messages will be sent periodically to test the system and to promote emergency preparedness. 

Students, staff, and faculty are strongly encouraged to sign up for zotALERT messages. You will need a “text-enabled” cell phone. Your cell phone number is private information and will not be published or released to the public.
