Emergency Messaging Alert System
Blue Ridge Community College offers an emergency messaging alert system as part of its comprehensive emergency preparedness plan to quickly notify students, faculty and staff of campus emergencies or campus closures via SMS text message, e-mail, voice message or any combination of the three. Participation is completely voluntary.
In the event of a campus emergency, it is vital that Blue Ridge Community College is able to contact you as quickly as possible with critical information regarding campus emergencies or closures. Students are strongly encouraged to sign-up online.
Use of this system is restricted to current students and employees of Blue Ridge Community College.
