AlertVU service disruption resolved

Vanderbilt takes the safety of our students, employees, patients and visitors very seriously. There are a number of emergency notification tools in place to alert people of potentially dangerous situations, including campus alerts through AlertVU, blast emails, tornado sirens, websites, overhead announcements and more.  After a tornado warning was issued for campus on Monday, April 4, one of those tools, AlertVU, was not launched as a result of an unexpected hardware/software failure by the vendor that supplies the technology for AlertVU.  Vanderbilt officials have met with the vendor and steps have been taken to assure that this system works reliably in the future.
