The college has instituted a collegewide alert system, which will enable timely, single-source notifications to all parties affected by an emergency situation in or around college locations. The system is designed to deliver large volumes of email and text messages (for those who opt to enroll their mobile device) in a condensed period of time. ESC Alert is powered by Rave Mobile Safety.
Accounts for all current faculty, staff and students have been automatically generated. Updates to primary information such as name, contact email address and college home location are periodically synchronized with the system. ESC Alert uses information from the college's student information system, Datatel, as the source data. It is suggested that students verify that their information is current on the My Records tab of myESC.
For information on how to access ESC Alert and update devices, visit the ESC Alert knowledgebase category.
