County College of Morris (CCM) now has another way to alert students, faculty and staff to weather-related closing and emergencies on campus. Called the Titan Alert, the system is able to send email, text or voicemail messages to all members of the campus community.
Initially the CCM email is the point of contact being uploaded to the Titan Alert system. However, faculty, students and staff will have the opportunity to change how they want to be contacted. Points of contact individuals can select include email, text message and/or voice phone messages. Up to 10 points of contact can be selected, including having a notice to a spouse, partner, parent, child or someone else.
The Titan Alert supplements the extensive resources already in place on campus to help ensure a safe and secure environment. Those existing services include the emergency phones, the sirens and paging system located throughout the campus, and the video surveillance system for all public spaces, along with CCM homepage website alerts.
The advantage Titan Alert will provide is that it will allow college officials to quickly communicate emergency situations both to people who are on campus and students, faculty and staff who may be off campus at the time of an event warranting an alert. It also will allow the college to present the recommended course of action, whether that might be to remain in place, evacuate a building or some other action.
