Binghamton University uses the RAVE messaging system to register and send B-Alert
emergency emails and text messages.
At the beginning of each fall and spring semester, anyone who logs into the my.binghamton.edu portal will receive an automated pop-up screen prompting them to enter at least one cellular telephone number capable of receiving text alerts. This pop-up screen will appear each semester and will easily allow you to update your information.
To sign up without going through the portal, go to https://www.getrave.com/login/binghamton and click the "Register Now" button. Your username is your current Binghamton University
Also be sure to check the Emergency Management website that has a wealth of information about emergency planning, response and preparation.
The B-Alert system is supplemented on campus by the Alertus system, which allows the New York State University Police Dispatch Center to send out a B-Alert message within minutes of learning of an emergency by simply pushing a button. This initial message is meant to alert the campus to any immediate action individuals should take and will be followed by updates using B-Alert as warranted.
