Alertus Mobile App

NorQuest College has implemented a personal mass notification system, Alertus, that can be used to send emergency notification messages to students and employees.

The emergency notification system will be used during a major incident, crisis, or emergency. You will receive messages to the phone numbers and email accounts that are registered with the system. The messages will provide information or direct you where to find more information.

The system will be tested a minimum of two times per year. The message will clearly state that the notification is only a test.
