In Case of Campus-wide Emergency

Lycoming College offers a multi-modal alert system in the event of a campus wide emergency. The College’s emergency siren will be activated in cases of campus-wide emergencies such as a hazardous material, hostile events, or a weather emergency (tornado). An e-mail message indicating the nature of the event will be sent to all campus users of the College’s e-mail system and a text message will be sent to campus community members registered with RAVE Alert. RAVE Alert is a new messaging program being introduced this semester (Spring 2014). You are strongly encourage to subscribe to this upgraded message alert program so you will receive a text message to your cell phone should such an emergency occur. Information on enrolling in the RAVE Mobile Safety Alert System will be emailed to the campus community prior to the start of classes in January.

Most importantly, you are encouraged to become familiar with the College’s emergency procedures.
