LECOM Campus Alerts

LECOM Offers Text Message Alerts to Your Cell Phone

LECOM has adopted Omnilerts, a notification system that enables the school to send urgent news to your cell phone and via other methods. After students and employees sign up for the service, the school can text cell phones with timely information about emergencies, class cancelations or critical campus reminders.

LECOM is making the service available to all current students, faculty and staff. Now, Omnilerts can notify everyone instantly regarding any emergency or development on campus. Since cell phones have become the primary source of communication for students, the Omnilerts system takes full advantage of the technology that students rely upon for instant information.

All first year students are provided with email access to Omnilerts upon matriculation. They are encouraged to log on with the information provided at orientation to add cell phone numbers to their account to be notified via text message of Campus emergencies, etc.

Campus police are urging the entire campus community to register. Although Omnilerts is an excellent system that can notify the entire campus within minutes, it only works if you take a minute to register yourself in the system. There is no cost to register with the Omnilerts notification system.

The notification system will be used to communicate important information during any potential emergency, such as a snow delay or closing, homeland security advisory, weather warning, gas leak, fire, crime watch, power failure, boil-water advisory, parking lot closure or other emergency event.

Depending on personal cell phone plans, there may be a nominal fee from your carrier to receive text messages, but there is no charge from the school to use the service.
