Albany - In the event of an emergency on the Albany State University campus, students and staff can now be notified in just seconds. ASU recently installed a system called Connect-Ed.

In the event of an emergency, like a shooting or a tornado, students can be sent a voice mail, text message or email that will alert them of the situation.

Up to six phone numbers per person can be stored, so they can be reached at home, on their cell phones, and even have their parents notified.

Police Chief Roberson Brown said, "It gives us another avenue to get the word out accurately and immediately to those students, faculty and staff concerning emergencies occurring on campus."

The Connect-Ed system was tested over the Christmas break and worked well. Students received a message from President Dr. Everette Freeman wishing them happy holidays.
