Missouri State Alert will only be used in the following situations:
Immediate threat/violent situation on campus, security alert, University closings, severe weather alerts, emergency situations of an extreme nature and periodic testings. The system will not be used for advertisements, marketing messages or to communicate campus or community events. Because of the significant number of commuter students on the Missouri State-West Plains campus, the system will only send emergency/weather alerts when classes are in session. Students should utilize another system for 24/7 emergency/weather alert coverage.
