Emergency Planning / MC Alert
Meredith’s Emergency Notification System
In the event of an emergency, rapid communication with the campus community is essential. Meredith College utilizes an emergency notification system known as MC Alert.
The MC Alert system allows Meredith to convey time-sensitive information within minutes, through a single phone call. Meredith College can schedule, send and track personalized voicemail, email and text messages to students, faculty and staff.
MC Alert emergency notification messages are sent via four different modes of communication:
- Voice messages to home, work and/or cell phones
- Text messages to cell phones, PDAs and other text-based devices
- Written messages to email accounts
- Messages to receiving devices for the hearing impaired.
In order to receive MC Alerts, you must sign up for the service via Web Advisor. You will need to log in with your Web Advisor user name and password.
Contact information included in the MC Alert service will only be used for emergency notifications and will not be made available to any other service, on or off campus.
