What should I do when I receive an WMCC ALERTS message?
There are three things you should do when you receive an WMCC ALERTS notification message:
- Read/Listen to the message - don't ignore it!
- Alert other people. During classes, professors and other students may have their cell phones turned off. If you're in a classroom, please advise the professor so that he or she may assist you in taking appropriate action. If you're at work, let your coworkers know about the alert. It's very important to help spread the word.
- Follow any instructions given with the message. The instructions will be direct and specific to the particular situation. Be sure to follow them carefully. If the situation requires it, additional messages will be transmitted to update you.
How can I be sure my telephone number wont be given out?
