       SCU uses, Everbridge, a “cloud based” emergency notification system that allows us to communicate important messages to our constituents in an efficient and rapid manner.  These messages are sent out via multiple mediums to each member of the campus community including SMS text and email in order to inform them of the situation.  Additionally, the notification will provide instructions to the receiving individual on how to respond to the notification.  This response will update “real time” in the Everbridge system, allowing SCU administrators and Campus Safety personnel to identify which members of the campus community have received the notification and which member may have not.  Using this data, Campus Safety can determine which members of the campus community, if any, need additional assistance during any given emergency situation.

LA County Mass Notification

Alert LA County, will be used by the County’s Emergency Operations Center to notify residents and businesses of emergencies or critical situations and provide information regarding necessary actions, such as evacuations.  The system utilizes the telephone companies’ 911 database and is able to contact land-line telephone numbers, whether listed or unlisted.  If the call is picked up by an answering machine, the system will leave a recorded message.  If the number called is busy or does not answer, the system will redial the number in an attempt to deliver the message.  The system is also TTY/TDD compatible.
