Getting the word out in an emergency

The decision to close the LMC campuses on Thursday was made after most of the campus was already closed on Wednesday evening. Our emergency communications systems were definitely put to the test.

 

The great news

Administrators arrived on campus Thursday morning to empty parking lots and a very quiet campus. For the vast majority of faculty, staff and students, the message was received remarkably well. We sent both emails and text messages, but since texts are generally more immediate for folks and many do not check email when they are not at work, text messaging is where we have chosen to focus our efforts.

 

Please remember that whenever you change your telephone number, the district will not know unless you follow the steps below to change your number in the system.

 

If you are one of the few who did not receive a text message, here’s what you can do:

 

1.      Go to the Insite portal (links are on the top and bottom of the DVC homepage.)

2.      Select InSite Portal, the Insite logo, or the link below the logo.



3.      Enter your username and password and select log in.



4.      Once into the portal, select “Manage My Security Settings” in the left column



5.       Then select “Registered Phones” at the bottom

 

Here you can add and remove telephone numbers. You will also have to select “OPT-IN for Text Messages from the College.” If you do not have your current phone on file, or if you don’t select OPT-IN, then you will not receive these critical messages.

 

We hope to reach even more of you the next time we need to send an all-college message.  Please be assured that we will only use this messaging system to convey information of great importance to everyone.

 

Thank you for helping us reach all of you with important information.
