Campus Alert Notification Instructions

What is the Campus Alert Notification System?
The CAN System is a communications platform that is used as the delivery mechanism for the Mount Marty College alert system. This system allows the college to broadcast alerts to students, staff, and faculty at all three campuses. Emergency situations, except those caused by severe weather, are rare but problems can arise. Mount Marty College wants to let students, parents, staff, and faculty know when there is an emergency situation, either on or around the campus, and what is needed to be done to be safe.

Those on this service can have alerts sent directly to their mobile device in addition to their MMC email account. You also have the option to add additional cellular phone numbers and email addresses to accommodate parent notification or additional contacts. The cellular number you use to register for MMC Campus Alert Notification System text messaging will not be published in any directory or used for any other purpose. It will be used for alerts and for periodic testing of the MMC Campus Alert Notification system only.
