BroncoAlert is a phone and text-based system allowing the university to proactively notify students, faculty and staff when an emergency is taking place on or near campus. BroncoAlert will only be used in critical situations, including weather emergencies, with potential to affect health or safety.


Students will automatically receive an e-mail in their BroncoMail account. Boise State will only activate the system in the event of an immediate threat to safety, or in a serious emergency. All personal information submitted remains private.

Faculty and Staff

When the university initiates an emergency message, the BroncoAlert system will send an automated voice message to campus office lines, call university reimbursed cell phones, and send an e-mail message to university e-mail accounts.

For assistance, please contact the Help Desk at 208-426-HELP (4357) or

The BroncoAlert emergency notification system is administered by members of Boise State’s Emergency Response Team. To provide this service, the university has contracted with Send Word Now, a mass notification provider working with universities nationwide to support emergency communications plans.
