The Emergency Notification System (ENS) allows the university to contact a mass number of people in the event of a campus-wide emergency that requires action by members of the Carleton community. It uses three forms of communication to deliver instructional messages should an emergency occur:

  • a computer screen notification
  • emails sent to Carleton addresses (e.g. @cmail.carleton.ca, @cunet.carleton.ca, @carleton.ca) and;
  • push notification via Carleton Mobile

Please note: ENS alerts are automatically sent to Carleton emails and Carleton desktop/laptop computers.
