WVC Emergency Text Alert system being implemented, 2008


WVC Emergency Text Alert System


Wenatchee Valley College has a an Emergency Text Alert system to notify students, faculty and staff about a campus emergency or unplanned closure. Students and employees can sign up for the text alerts to appear on their cell phones or other mobile devices.


The college does not charge for the service. However, it is the users’ responsibility to pay for any charges from their service providers for receiving the emergency text alerts. This would include occasional functional tests of the system or emergency drills. The system will not be used for other messages from the college.


Students and employees can sign up for the service online through www.wvc.edu/emergency. They will need their nine-digit student or staff identification numbers, which usually starts with “905.”
