CVCC Red Hawk Alert
CVCC Red Hawk Alert provides immediate notification for campus emergencies and inclement weather alerts.
InformaCast/Red Hawk Alert
The InformaCast/Red Hawk Alert is Catawba Valley Community College’s emergency alert system, which is used to send emergency messages within minutes of a critical incident affecting the campus community. The InformaCast/Red Hawk alert will also be used to notify you of campus closing due to weather or other issues that might arise. Students, faculty, and staff are automatically enrolled in the InformaCast/Red Hawk Alert system with the contact information registered with the college.
If you are a new employee or student and want to register your mobile device prior to the system updating with your contact information, from your mobile device you need to text #MNAlerts to (828) 392-7410.
Alerts sent via the InformaCast/Red Hawk Alert may also include other methods of notification that include:
- Email Messages
- Phone Calls
- Text Messages
- Messages via VoIP Phones
- External and Internal Speakers
- Digital Signs
- Social Media
The college will also perform periodic test of the Red Hawk Alert system.
What Initiates an Emergency Alert?
A broad range of situations could initiate emergency alerts. Once college officials confirm the existence of any significant emergency or dangerous situation that may potentially affect the health and/or safety of the campus community an emergency alert will be sent out.
If you have questions about the system, contact Deputy Chief of Staff, Safety, Security and Health Clyde Deal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
