Alma College has implemented an emergency notification system called Connect-ED® by The NTI Group Inc.
As part of this service, the College has the ability to reach all students, faculty and staff with immediate, time-sensitive information during a campus emergency. During critical situations, Alma College officials can use the system to broadcast pertinent information and provide details on appropriate responses. In all, the multi-modal service helps College officials simultaneously reach out to students, faculty and staff via:
- Voice messages to home, work, and cell phones
- Text messages to cell phones, PDAs and other text-based devices
- Written messages to e-mail accounts
- Messages to TTY/TDD receiving devices for people with hearing impairments
