Cougar Alert is a mass notification system comprised of email, voice and text messaging that is designed to send emergency messages to thousands of individuals in minutes. It supplements existing means of emergency communication, including outdoor warning sirens and severe weather alert radios. LSCC students, faculty and staff have the opportunity to provide a primary mobile phone number for receipt of text messages, and up to three other phone numbers (mobile or other) for receipt of voice messages. Emergency messages (i.e., school closings due to severe weather, danger on campus, etc...) will be sent via a system provided by the Blackboard Connect. Cougar Alert will be used in tandem with other campus communication tools.
