Citrus Alert: Emergency Notification System
Citrus College's emergency notification system, called
Citrus Alert, will enable the college to communicate with students and employees quickly in the event of an emergency. A Citrus Alert will be sent only to inform you of an imminent emergency, such as an act of nature (like fire, earthquake, floods), threat of violence, chemical hazard, or other significant events such as a school closing or power outage.
The Citrus Alert system will send messages to student-provided e-mail addresses and employees' Citrus e-mail addresses, as well as up to six phone numbers that they wish to provide. The Citrus Alert system can also send a text message to a user's cell phone.
Test messages will be sent approximately once a semester.
