Alerts point to one single source of information
When an alert is sent out, the RyersonSafe system will generate an accompanying web page that will act as the single source of information. This page will be hosted by AppArmor (the mass notification system supplier) on their servers. Alerts to your device, email, on the website banner and Twitter will point to this page for all the details we have available for you.
The aim is to get you the information you need to make informed decisions, which means you may receive multiple alerts within the span of a few minutes.
When the issue is resolved, an “all clear” notification will be sent
RyersonSafe alerts provide the latest and most up-to-date information. When an issue has been resolved, we will send an alert stating the issue is all clear.
