Emergency Preparedness

Communication is a critical factor when it comes to providing a safe campus environment. In order to provide timely communication to the campus community in the event of an emergency, 灯塔的大学 employs a student emergency notification system embedded within our campus software service called SonisWeb. This system allows 灯塔的大学 to immediately and simultaneously contact each student via their cell or college email. It provides the capability to send important critical information via text format in emergency situations. Examples of emergencies for which the service could be used include: a possible threat on campus, tornado/hurricane warnings, other severe weather alerts, or a safety situation that has forced the closure of a campus facility.

The Emergency Alert System is not a general campus notification tool. 灯塔的大学 will not be using this system to announce campus events or individual class cancellations. 灯塔的大学 will use this service 只有 for situations deemed serious or critical and that pose an immediate and significant threat to the campus community.

How much does it cost?
The service itself is free. You do not have to pay anything to sign up. Do be aware, however, that your cellular phone carrier may charge you to receive a text message.

Do students have to sign up?
学生 are automatically added to the emergency alert system. Information is not shared with other services and is used 只有 to provide timely notification of emergencies.
