The “Campus Informer” is an emergency public address system that was installed in all campus buildings.

The system is controlled and activated by the Department of Public Safety.  The P.A. system allows Department of Public Safety staff to broadcast live information to building occupants.

When the informer is activated, amber strobe lights flash in conjunction with an audible alert tone for approximately 10 seconds before live instructions are broadcasted. Individual or multiple buildings may be activated depending on the emergency. Bemidji State University and Northwest Technical College are committed to creating safe and secure environments for all patrons while on campus, and this public address system is another valuable tool to help communicate emergencies if they arise.
