7.19 Emergency Notification System
All students are required to sign up to receive emergency notifications from Harvard University's Community Emergency Notification System called MessageMe, which allows the University to quickly distribute critical information to you, wherever you are located, during an emergency.
MessageMe helps you to stay informed in the event of an emergency by sending alerts to your personal electronic device (cell phone, pda, smartphone, etc.) through text messaging, voice, and/or e-mail.
Students can sign up for the Emergency Notification Service by going to https://messageme.harvard.edu/ or through MyCourses (http://mycourses.med.harvard.edu/). Instructions for MyCourses are as follows: Click on Preferences in the upper left corner of the page, click on Messaging. Click on the button, Sign Up/Edit under the Emergency Broadcasting Text Message Service panel and follow the directions to register for this service.
