Emergency Notification Banner
An important component of the Maroon Alert emergency notification system is the use of web pages to warn the university community of emergency situations.
When Mississippi State emergency managers activate the Maroon Alert system, a yellow bar with "EMERGENCY: MORE INFO" and a link to the Maroon Alert web page automatically appears near the top of the university's top page and many other high-level pages, including any page with the "standard header" seen above.
It looks like this:
That functionality is now available to any MSU web site, no matter what server it is hosted on.
All MSU webmasters are encouraged to incorporate the emergency banner into their sites. The more web pages that use the emergency banner, the more people are likely to see a timely warning.
The emergency banner will only appear in the case of a real emergency or an emergency exercise and will vanish at the conclusion.
To see what it will look like on your page when activated, temporarily use this instead:
Don't forget to change it back to the version without "?bannertest=Y" when you are finished.
If your site uses SSL (ssl.msstate.edu), use this to avoid repeated messages warning about insecure elements:
