In order to achieve coordinated emergency communications for all of Cornell’s campuses, we recommend the implementation of this web-based notification tool to complement the official university Emergency Notification System. The Emergency Banner is currently in use on over 500 websites throughout the university.
When activated, the Emergency Banner appears as a modal window that contains official statements and instructions relating to emergencies that may affect the Cornell community. The system will only be activated in the case of extreme, campus-wide emergencies or tests of the university alert system and will be disabled once the threat has been resolved.
To add the emergency banner to your Cornell University-affiliated website, please download the file or insert the following lines into the
<head> section of your website.

Sites hosted using CIT's Blog Service have the emergency banner automatically enabled and do not require any additional steps for implementation.
