RCTC’s emergency notification system makes it possible for students, employees, and community members to receive quick notifications by text, phone, and email for campus emergencies that threaten life or safety and/or severely impact standard campus operations. The RCTC Emergency Alert system will only be used in emergency situations.
How do I sign up for alerts?
RCTC STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES:
All current RCTC students and employees automatically receive RCTC Emergency Alerts at their RCTC email accounts. If you wish to receive alerts as a text message, a phone message, or at another email address, you need to set up an account by using either your RCTC email address or a personal email address as a user ID. You will need to establish a password for this account.
Non-RCTC students and employees may sign up to receive RCTC Emergency Alerts. If you wish to receive alerts as a text message, a phone message, or an e-mail address, you need to set up an account by using an e-mail address as a user ID. You will need to establish a password for this account.
Passwords must be at least 8 characters, including 1 lowercase letter, 1 capital letter, and 1 number. Spaces and special characters are not permitted.
