Introducing Emergency Alerts powered by SchoolMessenger|
Lakeland Community College now offers an emergency messaging alert system as part of our part of its comprehensive emergency preparedness plan to quickly notify students, faculty and staff of campus emergencies or closures. Emergency Alerts are available via voice, email, and SMS text message. The Lakeland Police Department is responsible for authorizing use of the emergency notification system.
In the event of a campus emergency, it is vital that Lakeland Community College is able to contact you as quickly as possible with critical information regarding campus emergencies or closures and we will send you notifications through this system. As a current credit student or college employee, your primary phone number, cell phone number (if provided) and college e-mail address have been pre-loaded into the notification system. We strongly encourage you to review your information and update it if needed, so please take the time to ensure that your primary and cell phone numbers are current [MORE INFO].
Additionally, you can manage your notification preferences and add additional phone number(s), e-mail address(es) and / or SMS text number(s) to the Emergency Alerts system via Contact Manager. You will be provided with information on how to activate and maintain your account via email at the start of every semester. IF YOU DO NOTHING to activate or maintain your account, you will still receive Emergency Alerts.[MORE INFO]
When a cell number is part of your default contact information, you MUST respond to the one time opt-in text message to receive emergency text alerts.
If you do not respond when you first receive the message, you can text SUBSCRIBE or OPTIN to 68453.
