Howard College / SWCID has partnered with Rave Mobile Safety to provide an emergency alert system capable of delivering messages via HC Alert for faculty, staff, and students. It will send the message to your Howard College email address, as well as your cell phone and other email address that you may provide. We have pre-enrolled you in the program at no additional expense to you using your Howard College email and cell phone number if it was on file. We encourage you to login to the HC Alert site to confirm your contact information and choose your notification preferences. (Note that your cellular phone provider may charge a per-text message fee for the delivery of emergency notifications to your phone). While logged in, you are also given the option to remove your contact information if you do not wish to receive any emergency alerts from Howard College.
HC Alert is a safety tool used to promote timely notification of critical information to students, faculty and staff. As HC Alert is activated, Howard College sends an alert message using this system to your cell phone carrier. Your cell phone carrier then provides the mechanism to get the message to you. Once the message is sent we no longer have any control over how long it takes the message to reach you. Delivery times can range depending upon your cell phone service carrier and/or your email system. By choosing to remain in the HC Alert system you are acknowledging that you understand this disclaimer and choose to proceed with enrollment in the HC Alert system, and you waive and release any right and claims against Howard College, it's sponsors, organizers, supervisors, and employees for damages and/or injuries which may be sustained while participating in the program.
