Star Alert, a free Rochester Community and Technical College/University Center Rochester emergency notification system, makes it possible for students and employees to receive notice – by cell phone and/or e-mail – of campus-related emergencies that threaten life safety or severely impact campus operations.
To register, fill in your cell phone number(s) and/or your personal e-mail address(es). You may also provide additional numbers and/or addresses if you would want significant others to be aware of the situation. When you register you will receive a confirming message. If you ever want to cancel the service, simply follow the same process and remove your data.
In an emergency, Star Alert will send a text message to the cell number(s) and/or e-mail address(es) you provide. Notifications identified as “Star Alert” messages will note the nature of the emergency, what action, if any, you are to take, and where to find more information. Star Alert also will let you know if campus is closed or if classes are delayed or canceled.
Star Alert notification is a message that the campus will send to all Faculty, Staff and Student e-mail addresses when there is an emergency. Depending on the nature and severity of the emergency, other mechanisms may include alerts on the RCTC Web site and voice mail messages on campus phones. In emergency situations, an important resource for information is always the RCTC emergency Web site at www.roch.edu/dept/security
