  • email account (work, home, other)
  • smartphone/PDA (BlackBerry, Treo & and other handhelds)

*All new users must register first prior to logging into the system.

When an incident or emergency occurs, authorized senders will notify you using NOVA Alert. Nova Alert is your connection to real-time updates, instructions on where to go, what to do, or what not to do, as well as instructions on where to find more detailed information.
