Trinidad State College uses the “Notify Me” notification system. In the event of an emergency or other situation for which immediate communication with the community is necessary, this system sends mass voice, text and email messages to those Trinidad State College campus community members who have signed up for the service. The “Notify Me” system is also used to notify the community in the event of weather related school closures. While it is an opt in system;, students are strongly encouraged and led through the sign up process at registration and employees receive directions for sign up when hired. Periodic updates and reminders are sent to encourage members to keep their Notify Me account information up to date.
If campus security and administration determine that a situation or criminal activity presents a serious or continuing threat to the campus community a timely warning will be issued. Pre-developed messages have been produced and can be pushed out quickly in the event a timely warning needs to be issued. Departments that can push out a timely warning include IT, Marketing and the local Police Department. The warning will be issued through any and all of the following campus systems: The college e-mail system, the Notify Me system and the campus phone system.
