Emergency Preparedness

Communication is a critical factor when it comes to providing a safe campus environment. In order to provide timely communication to the campus community in the event of an emergency, Beacon College employs a student emergency notification system embedded within our campus software service.

This system allows Beacon College to immediately and simultaneously contact each student via their cell or college email. It provides the capability to send important critical information via text format in emergency situations. Examples of emergencies for which the service could be used include: a possible threat on campus, tornado/hurricane warnings, other severe weather alerts, or a safety situation that has forced the closure of a campus facility.

What is it?

The Emergency Alert System is not a general campus notification tool. Beacon College will not be using this system to announce campus events or individual class cancellations. Beacon College will use this service ONLY for situations deemed serious or critical and that pose an immediate, significant threat to the campus community.

How much does it cost?

The service itself is free. Students do not have to pay anything to sign up.

Do students have to sign up?

Students are automatically added to the emergency alert system. Information is not shared with other services and is used ONLY to provide timely notification of emergencies.
