COMMUNICATION IN AN EMERGENCY
In the event of an emergency affecting Alverno College, we will communicate in multiple ways so that you receive messages in a timely manner. Emergency notifications are limited to such things as severe weather alerts, emergency building concerns, intruders or pandemic outbreak. We currently use the following means of communication: Alverno email; announcements on Alverno’s home page (alverno.edu) and campus digital signs; voice mail and text messaging to phone numbers registered on Rave Alert, an emergency communication service for colleges and universities; campus announcements and/or bullhorns; pop-up messages on Alverno computers. Severe weather updates impacting campus operations will also be shared through local media stations.
Emergency Voice and Text Messaging
Alverno automatically enrolls all students, faculty and staff to receive emergency notification by voice and/or SMS text messaging. Those who are registered will receive a voice message and/or a text message within minutes of it being sent. The system is tested once a semester.
