Update Your SSAFER Phone Number in Banner

by Mur Muchane

On Friday, June 27, ITS will activate a new online form that will allow you to update your SSAFER cell phone number simply by logging into Banner Self-Service.  

Davidson uses the SSAFER system to rapidly contact members of the campus community in the case of an emergency. Those who provide a cell phone number will receive text message alerts from the system with emergency information, should an emergency occur. The SSAFER system is to be used for fires, bomb threats, severe weather situations, long-term power outages, hazardous material incidents, or any situation that could threaten lives or the safety of the campus community.

If you have not previously provided a SSAFER cell phone number, or if it has been more than six months since you last updated it, you will be prompted to update your information as soon as you log in to Banner Self-Service .  You can also update your information at any time by selecting the "Update SSAFER Cell Phone" option from the "Personal Information" menu in Banner. The cell phone number you provide will not be used for any other purpose than to contact you by text message in case of an emergency.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the Help Desk, x 2900.
