Emergency Text Notifications

El Camino College uses a communications service that allows us to send important emergency information directly to students, faculty and staff using the latest technology. The Nixle Community Information Service allows us to create and deliver messages to subscribers instantly via cell phone text message and/or email.

When receiving these emergency notifications, they will be rated according to the college’s emergency designations.

There are 3 types of alerts/emergency notifications:

  • Alerts – Emergencies, imminent action/response needed
  • Advisories – important notice, no action needed at this time
  • Community – Parking Lot Closures, etc

Employee and student actions will be determined by the “level of emergency.” Messages may include emergency notices regarding crime, earthquakes, gas leaks, etc., as well as other safety information. This free service is secure, reliable, and easy to use.
