New Mass Notification System

New Mass Notification System

The Lab has recently acquired the Connect-GOV notification system for emergency communications. This system will be used to alert staff and Users in the event that the Lab is unexpectedly closed or opening is delayed due to severe weather, emergencies or similar circumstances. Connect-GOV will not be used for routine communications.

For employees and students, the Connect-GOV system will near simultaneously deliver a message to home and mobile phone numbers and non-Lab e-mail address listed in the personal contact section of the Employee Self Service system. For Users, the product will contact the home number and the additional e-mail address listed in JList. The system will leave a message on your voicemail or answering machine if no one is available to answer. By design, the system will not call Jefferson Lab office phones.

The new system is already employed by many local municipalities, and will be used to augment the Lab's robust communications system. In addition to this mass notification system, the Lab currently has the ability to page all Lab pagers; e-mail all staff and Users; post emergency messages on the Lab website; update the Lab's status line (757-234-6236); leave a status message on the Lab's main line (757-269-7100); and notify local television and radio stations of the Lab's status.

The system will undergo a full test in the next few weeks. In the meantime, all staff and users are asked to verify that the information on file with the Lab is correct. Staff may review and update their contact information directly via the Employee Self Service system at:

Users may change their information in JList. To do so, log in to the system, then click on "People," then "People Info, then "My Info." Finally, click on the "Personal" tab, located just above your photo. From here, you can edit your information via the "edit" button. JList can be accessed at:

If you need assistance in changing your information, contact Human Resources. Staff may contact Treva Ferguson at x7291 or . Users may contact Tina Johnson at x7611 or .

In response to requests from staff for a printed phone list, the Jefferson Lab internal phone list is now available from the Popular Applications section of the JLab Insight Front Page. This document provides a printable phonelist containing the office, extension, pager and e-mail address for all staff and users.
