Now that the university has a robust Emergency Mass Notification system in place, University Relations has decided to retire its Emergency Banner, which was designed to deliver emergency notifications uniformly on Cornell websites.
The Emergency Banner script was decommissioned on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. This will impact any website that calls the script, so we recommend prompt removal.
Removing the Emergency Banner script
If the Emergency Banner has been implemented on a Cornell-affiliated website you support, you will likely find the following code in the
<head> section of your website, or just before the closing
</body> tag. This code should be removed:
<!-- Emergency Banner -->
Sites hosted using CIT's Blog Service will have the emergency banner automatically removed and do not require any further action.
