Notifications in Case of an Emergency

In the event of a crisis at Western, the university will use every communication tool at its disposal to share information with the campus community as quickly as possible.

These include:

It is important that the university know your main phone numbers, including cell phones; it's also helpful for the university to have contact information for your family members in the event of emergency.
