LIBI’S EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION & TIMELY WARNING SYSTEM
All members of the LIBI community who register to receive LIBI’s Emergency Notifications will receive an alert on the cellphone number they provided to the college at the time of the sign-up. Members of the college who affirmatively selected to opt out of receiving Emergency Notifications will not receive any warning messages. All students, as well as faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to participate in LIBI’s Emergency Notification system. LIBI’s Emergency Notification system is intended to provide immediate and up-to-date information regarding weather and other emergency situations. Updates will be sent as appropriate or necessary; an “all-clear” will be sent when the college believes that the immediate emergency is over and it is safe to return to regular activities. Students and employees are urged to update their cellphone numbers with the college whenever their main contact number changes.
Emergency Notification is utilized to distribute information regarding emergencies (when there is imminent danger to the health, safety and well-being of the members of the LIBI community) that require immediate action from the recipients. The system is activated when an imminent danger situation has not been contained or controlled, and an immediate response is required by members of the community.
The issuing of a Timely Warning is based on the information provided by the local police departments or other law enforcement entities or departments about certain crimes in and around the communities where LIBI’s campuses are located. Depending on the time sensitivity of the incident, the issuance of the Timely Warning may be made without consulting the Safety and Security committee. Timely Warnings will be issued withholding the names and other identifying information of victims, and will be issued in a timely manner to aid in the prevention of similar crimes.
By entering your name, you agree to provide LIBI’s Emergency Notification & Timely Warning System with your most current cell phone number and email address. In order to remain current in our system, it is your responsibility to apprise the college of any changes in your cell phone number or email address. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of each user to contact their cellphone provider to ensure they can receive “short code text messages”. SMS short codes are 5-6 digit phone numbers that are used by businesses to opt-in consumers to their SMS programs, and then used to send text messages.
