In Case of Campus-wide Emergency
The College has installed an emergency siren that will be activated in cases of campus-wide emergencies such as a hazardous material accident, hostile events, or a weather emergency (tornado). The College’s RAVE Mobile Alert system enhances our ability to communicate with students in a timely manner in the event of a campus-wide emergency. The RAVE Mobile Alert system is a voluntary service where, in the event of a campus-wide emergency, registered participants receive a text message to their cell phone indicating the nature of the event provided they have emergency messaging capabilities. Registration for the RAVE Mobile Alert system is ordinarily accomplished for you by the uploading of your cell number from available records in the Office of the Registrar and/or Freshman registration. Registration or verification of your participation in the RAVE Mobile Alert system can also be accomplished through https://www.getrave.com/login/lycoming.
You are also encouraged to become familiar with the College’s emergency procedures at:
