Emergency Alert System

York College's Emergency Alert System is an instant, mass notification system that enables students and members of the faculty and professional staff to receive emergency alerts on cell and home phones and through text messages and email. This service is part of our strategy to enhance campus-wide communications during an emergency. Our goal is to increase safety on the York College campus.

York College Emergency Alert will only be activated when there is an imminent threat to the campus community. In the unlikely event that a situation such as an active shooter or major weather emergency is occurring on the campus, the Emergency Alert System will be utilized in addition to other resources to alert the campus to the emergency and provide basic instructions on what to do. The Emergency Alert will not be used where a situation has occurred that poses no further threat to the campus community. The College will use other methods of communication to inform the campus of these occurrences.

York College Emergency Alert is a completely voluntary service and is powered by the NTI Connect-ED system. No advertisements or non-emergency alerts will be sent to you. You must sign up for the service in order to receive alerts. And since this is a voluntary service, you may choose to opt-in or opt-out of the service at any time.
