About CC Alert
As part of ongoing efforts to improve communication in case of an
emergency, Cerro Coso has implemented an emergency alert system. Cerro Coso
maintains an emergency management program to protect lives, property, and to
continue necessary critical functions. Cerro Coso shall notify
affected members of the Cerro Coso community of an emergency or urgent
situation as rapidly as possible. Cerro Coso has implemented an emergency
notification system to expand and enhance its emergency notification
methods. The emergency notification system will deliver vital
information to the students, faculty and staff of Cerro Coso as quickly as
possible in the event of emergency or alert situation. This system has
been established to enhance the safety of all of our students and staff, as
well as to provide direction in an emergency and to minimize misinformation.
How It Works
In the event of an emergency that threatens the lives and/or property of the campus community, the following will be sent as quickly as the situation allows:
Additional information and updates will be distributed through the Cerro Coso website, e-mail and phone systems.
Other than an occasional test of the system, CC Alert will be used only to contact you in case of a very serious incident or situation, a campus or site closing, or some other event that requires rapid, wide-scale notification to the community. Examples of such events would be a campus shooting, bomb threat, hazardous materials spills, flood, earthquake, or fire.
Information about OPTING Out of Text Message Alerts
Although you can chose to Opt Out of receiving Alert messages, we strongly encourage you not to Opt Out. In an emergency situation, the ALERT system will attempt to contact you with important information via all the available communication methods including voice messages to the phone numbers you have provided, email and text messaging. Depending on where you are at and what you are doing at the time the messages are sent, a Text message could be the best communication mode to alert you of the emergency condition. For further information about Text Message Alerts, please refer to the Alert System FAQ.
