SEND WORD NOW – Mass Notification System
The Community College of Philadelphia has implemented an emergency notification system called Send Word Now, which will enable fast and efficient dissemination of critical information to students, faculty and staff of the College community, including the Regional Centers.
Within minutes, Send Word Now allows the Office of Safety and Security to send alerts through text messaging, phone, and e-mail to numerous devices, such as mobile phones, College-owned landline phones, and e-mail accessible devices. This system provides College students, faculty, and staff with an additional layer of security and protection for emergency response.
Send Word Now is designed to provide emergency information regarding situations that constitute an ongoing threat to the College community, such as an armed suspect on the loose, active fire or credible bomb threat, to name a few situations. An “all clear” message will be sent once an emergency situation is stabilized and it is deemed to be safe to resume normal activity.
As a student, faculty or staff member at the College you are automatically enrolled in Send Word Now.
