The Rave Alert Emergency Notification system is an emergency alert system that allows authorized college officials to send emergency, safety information, and protective action messages to students, faculty and staff to protect lives and well-being, protect assets and minimize campus disruption. Rave Alert provides easy and effective simultaneous multi-modal broadcasts and targeted messages across all communication modes, from any device.
Only authorized campus personnel will be able to send emergency notification from the Rave Alert system. Emergency messages will only be sent via email and text, such messages will include emergency protective actions, warnings and post-incident information related to life safety issues to the campus community. Rave Alert may be used to notify the College Community of changes to normal campus operations.
Alert notifications will be sent for events in the categories identified below or other “life threatening” situations. “ALL CLEAR” and/or additional follow-up messages pertaining to the end of an event or additional instructions regarding the event will be sent. General notifications of non-emergency campus events or activities will not be sent via the Emergency Alert system. Classification and Acceptable Usage:
