What is our Emergency Alert System?
In the event of an emergency, Hartnell College can contact you by email, text, and voice. Hartnell College has partnered with the Everbridge Mass Notification system to provide emergency notifications. The system is used to send emergency notifications to Hartnell faculty, staff, and students in the event of a campus emergency such as a campus closure or hazardous situation. The system will send notifications through email, voice calls, and text messaging.
What type of messages will I receive?
Hartnell College will only send you messages related to emergencies. You will never receive advertisements and your information is never provided to others.
How do I sign up to receive the alerts?
All faculty, staff, and students are automatically enrolled in the alert system, provided that there is a phone number and/or email address entered in the student information system.
What if my email address or phone number changes?
Students can log into WebAdvisor and update their contact informtion. Faculty and staff can notify the HR department of contact information changes. Changes made will be effective after midnight each day.
What if I want to opt-out of the system completely?
Harnell believes it is important to be able to notify all faculty, staff, and students in the event of an emergency; therefore, you cannot opt-out of receiving an alert to your Hartnell email or a Hartnell phone number. However, you can opt-out of your personal email and phone numbers. Students should use the Address and Phone Number Update Form in PAWS, employees should contact Monica Massimo in Human Resources.
What mobile phone carriers are supported?
All U.S. mobile carriers are supported.
What if my phone number is long distance?
Your phone will be called regardless of whether it is long distance or not.
Will I receive advertisements or text messaging SPAM?
No, never. We respect your privacy and you will never receive anything besides official emergency alerts.
