Emergency Alert System

What this service does:

Oakland Community College's Emergency Alert System (EAS) enables the college to send rapid notification to students, faculty, and staff in the event of an emergency.

The Emergency Alert System is the official system used to notify students and staff of class cancelations, school closing, or of an emergency situation such as an active shooter.

You can set up the EAS to use multiple contact methods to send messages to you, including text message, voice message up to 3 phone numbers, and up to 2 emails.

The actual EAS system is managed by Public Safety.   If you have questions about your EAS account, contact the department Administrative Specialist at Ext. 4661.

Who can request it?
