The MGA Knight Alert system is a free service that adds to the University's ability to provide an environment in which students can feel safe knowing that they will be informed quickly and accurately of campus emergencies including severe weather conditions and closings.  The MGA Knight Alert system allows students to receive voice messages via home phones, work phones, and mobile phones; text messages (SMS) to mobile phones; and e-mail notifications. All students are encouraged to update their contact information in SWORDS under the Personal Information tab and the MGA Alert Update Contact Information link. This can also be accessed at https://www.mga.edu/police/alert/index.php For MGA Knight Alert questions, contact the Middle Georgia State University Police Department at (478) 471-2414 or police@mga.edu.  For technical help, contact the Middle Georgia State Technical Assistance Center (TAC) at (478) 471-2023 or (478) 757-4393 or helpdesk@mga.edu

In addition to the Knight Alert, MGA also offers a phone application that can be downloaded free of charge. The app can be found by searching “Rave Guardian”. Once the app is downloaded to a mobile device, the user can select Middle Georgia State University as his/her institution. The app allows the end user to receive emergency notifications, offer tips to police, immediately dial university police or 911 at the touch of a button as well as establish friends to help monitor personal safety through safety timers.
