Manor College has implemented a Text Message Emergency Alert System, which will allow subscribers to receive emergency or weather-related alerts instantly through their cell phones, PDAs or through email.

The system will only be used to immediately alert the Manor community to an emergency situation or to changes to the class schedule due to inclement weather. There is no cost to the subscriber other than any regular fees associated with text messaging services.

New users must create an account. Please enter the following fields: Username, Firstname, Lastname, Password, Verify Password, Phone Number, Select Carrier. A validation code will be texted to your cell phone and must be entered online in order to successfully complete enrollment.

Each subscriber may enter a total of three contacts: 2 cell phone numbers and 1 email address — that would receive emergency alerts. We are suggesting that students consider entering, in addition to their own contact information, a cell phone number or an email address for their parents.

Thank you for participating in this important step in assuring the security of everyone in the Manor community.
