Alertus / Resources / Safe in Seconds Initiative


Safe in Seconds Initiative

when Minutes Matter, We Notify in Seconds

When an emergency happens, the Alertus Desktop™ Notification gives you the power to instantly grab the attention of your computer users with an audible, full screen alert on all or select PCs and Macs across your facilities. Alertus Desktop Notification can be activated through the Alertus Activation Software or your existing third-party personal recipient notification software.

To date, the initiative has benefitted more than 700 institutions both nationally and internationally including Burke County Public Schools, the College of William and Mary, Louisiana State University, and Vanderbilt University. The initiative provides an enterprise-wide perpetual license of Alertus Desktop Notification at no cost.

Who Can Qualify

Universities, colleges, K–12 districts, and certain nonprofit entities qualify. Corporations, healthcare institutions, and for-profit entities do not qualify in most cases. The intent of our grant initiative is to help organizations with severe budget challenges. If you are not sure whether you are a candidate for the initiative, we encourage you to submit the form below.



Alertus Desktop Notification is always on and can activate alerts to make you safe in seconds. Because it is continuously running in the background of your computer, your people are always protected.


Instantly send an audible Alert to every computer user in your organization. Set different customized messages to match specific types of emergencies.


You will be able to deploy the Alertus Desktop Notification on all desktops and laptops, within your facilities, managed or personally owned. The license never expires and updates are released at no cost semi-annually.


Testimonial: North Carolina State University

We saw Alertus as a means to reach people in classrooms, offices and computer labs that typically have poor reception or may be identified as shelter areas. The integration with our existing systems along with the grant made it an obvious choice for our campus.
