Communication during and immediately after a disaster is vital for response and recovery. Without coordinated communication, even the most sophisticated disaster recovery plan could be rendered ineffective. The One Call Now service gives members of the Controller's Office staff the ability to send SMS text alerts, emails, and recorded telephone messages - even when electrical, voice and data lines are experiencing service disruptions. 

One Call Now is not a substitute for berkeley newsemergency.berkeley.edu, or the WarnMe Emergency Alerts service. In the event of a disaster, please refer to these sources for the latest status of the UC Berkeley campus. 

More Information about preparing for a campus emergency is available from the Office of Emergency Management website. The current status of campus computer systems also is available online.
