The time of year has come where we purge the critical alert database. What does this mean for you? Simple… if you want to receive critical alerts via your phone or text message (e.g. weather closings, campus emergencies) you will need to enter your number into the critical alert system.
I often get asked why we purge numbers every year? Simple, we don’t want to spam you. The decision was made by the safe college team a couple of years ago that we would keep the system opt-in. As a result we purge the database every year to ensure you only get the messages if you have selected to receive the messages. We will NOT spam you.
Here is how to register:
- Log in to CPCC login (http://cpcclogin.cpcc.edu/).
- Under Options, select “Critical Alert Notification.”
- Enter the mobile number where you would like to receive notifications.
- Enter up to two phone numbers to receive text alerts and direct phone calls from CPCC.
This system will only be used in the event of a true emergency such as an intruder, natural disaster or campus emergency. The system will NOT be used for routine communication. To ensure that the system is working properly, you may receive a test message each semester.
Sign-up for Critical Alert is free; however, be aware of your individual cell phone plan and the costs involved for text messaging and calls. Registration is good for one year and you will be notified when you need to re-register.
Again, CPCC will only use this text messaging/phone notification in emergency situations. Sign up now!
