New emergency preparedness on campus

Register for GC Alert today!“If there’s an emergency at Geneva, we want everyone to know as soon as possible and to be able to respond in a safe manner,” says Geneva College Director of Security Dennis Damazo. “That’s why we've instituted new emergency preparedness measures on campus this year.”

At the core of Geneva’s new Emergency Management Plan is the state-of-the-art GC Alert mass notification system. With GC Alert, Geneva College will be able to send students, faculty and staff text messages and e-mails in the event of a campus emergency. From classes cancelled because of snow to disasters such as fire or tornado, GC Alert will tell members of the campus community what’s going on and what to do about it.

GC Alert is presented in conjunction with e2Campus, which was the company that first introduced campus text alerts and remains the leading emergency notification system in the country. It requires that people register by going to a Geneva Web-based link.  

When people sign up for GC Alert, the cell phone number and e-mail addresses registrants provide will not be used for any other purpose or shared with any other party. There will be one test message per semester and emergency notification messages will only be sent in the event of an emergency.

In addition to the GC Alert, Geneva is focusing on providing step-by-step emergency guidelines as part of its new Emergency Management Plan. The emergency guidelines are posted on the Geneva Web site at Emergency Information, which can be reached by way of a link located at the bottom of every page.

Geneva College is a comprehensive Christian college of the arts, sciences and professional studies. Founded in the tradition of the Reformed Christian faith, Geneva prepares students to serve Christ in all areas of society: work, family and the church. Geneva is a founding member of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU).
