LACC AlertU Emergency Message System

To enhance the safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors to Los Angeles City College, the college has selected the AlertU platform to implement an emergency messaging system (EMS) to provide students and members of the community with cell phone based text messaging in case of an emergency situation.

The LACC AlertU EMS is a web-based system intended for emergency text messaging only, using short message service (SMS) technology. The LACC AlertU system provides for two-way communication with any subscriber who may be involved or observing an emergency situation, in real-time.

Use of the LACC AlertU system is open to all students and individuals who attend classes or activities at any of the college's locations, as well as all college staff and faculty. The LACC AlertU system is completely voluntary and the user is required to Opt-in to enable their personal cell phone to send and receive messages in the case of an emergency. LACC AlertU subscribers can Opt-out at any time to discontinue the emergency messaging service.

Test messages will be sent to each user four times per year to insure the integrity of the system and each user will be charged standard text messaging rates by their cell phone service provider.  To subscribe to the LACC AlertU message system, or to find out more about it, just click on the link or button below.
