Emergency Alert System

Your safety is our No. 1 priority. In the event of a potential or actual disaster or other emergency, it is essential that we have a way to quickly alert you as part of the Johns Hopkins community.

The Johns Hopkins emergency alert system is our best tool to immediately provide information and clear instructions to ensure the safety and security of our employees, faculty members and students at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and on the East Baltimore campus. To receive critical messages during emergency situations, you must self-enroll in the mandatory emergency alert system.

Make sure you are enrolled by taking the following steps:

  • Log in to your JHED account at
  • Hover over the “My Profile” icon on the left side of the page and click on the “Emergency Alerts” icon.
  • Scroll down to the yellow shaded area titled “Cell Phone” and update or enter the necessary information.

Enrollment in the Emergency Alert System is mandatory and will ensure that you will know what to do when disaster strikes or danger is imminent. Rest assured that we respect your privacy. Your cellphone number will not be shared or used outside of the purpose of emergency communications.

Thank you for doing your part to stay informed during emergency situations.
