Emergency Text Messaging

As part of the HPU comprehensive emergency communication system, which complements the existing e-mail, web page, and broadcasting communication tools, HPU is equipped with another communication tool called Rave Alert.

This program allows the University to instantly send emergency information to students, faculty, and staff via text messaging. As such, Hawai'i Pacific University encourages all students to have a cellular (mobile) telephone in order to receive immediate alerts when situations arise (such as natural disasters, fires, bomb threats, or acts of violence) that might threaten the lives and safety of HPU community members.

For those with mobile devices (cellular phones, Blackberry, etc.), HPU highly recommends that students participate in the Rave Alert program. By registering, students agree to the program’s terms and conditions. There is no additional cost to HPU community members to participate in this program; their regular phone rates with their mobile service providers apply. In the event of an emergency, students now have an additional communication tool through the Rave Alert program. REGISTER TODAY!
