Website Emergency Banner Script will be Decommissioned on March 31, 2021

Related services: Blogs


The Emergency Banner script will be decommissioned on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. This will affect any website that calls the script.

Now that the university has a robust Emergency Mass Notification system in place, University Relations has decided to retire its Emergency Banner, which was designed to deliver emergency notifications uniformly on Cornell websites.

Website administrators:

  • To avoid negative impacts on your site’s performance, we recommend that you remove the Emergency Banner script from your code before March 31.
  • Sites hosted by CIT's Blogs Service will have the script automatically removed and do not require any further action.

For more information and instructions to remove the emergency banner script, visit the emergency banner page. 

Please contact webmaster@cornell.edu with any questions.
