I got an email Notification, what now?
An email notification will be sent when Beacon detects that a student is browsing content related to self-harm, suicide, threats and violence. Members on the Escalation List will be sent an email from firstname.lastname@example.org containing a direct link to the alert card. Included in the email notification will be the student's name, deployment, and the current Escalation list in the order in which Safety Support staff will begin to call until contact is made.
Note: The browsing content related to self-harm or suicide that triggered the alert will not be included in the email.
To view the screenshots and sources of the triggered event use the link provided in the email to view browsing history, rationale, and screenshots within the alert card.
