Emergency Alerts

LCCC's emergency notification system is designed to quickly send text or voice messages to mobile phones, land lines and email accounts whenever there's a campus situation STUDENTS need to know about.
 
Woman on cellWhen students sign up, they can choose how they want to be notified if there's a college emergency such as a dangerous situation on campus. Signing up for text messages is probably a good choice for most users. But students may also wish to add a land line for receiving voice messages or a personal email account. This system will also be used for letting students know if the campus is closed due to a snowstorm. Students won’t even have to get out of bed to find out if classes are canceled.

Signing Up

To sign up, students can go to their EaglesEye account and click on "My EaglesEyeAlert" under the "Dashboard" tab to get a full list of options. Students can also choose to add severe weather warnings. If the National Weather Service issues a severe weather warning, students be automatically notified.

FAQ

Is there a charge for registering to receive messages?
This is a free service provided by Laramie County Community College. However, students' cell phone providers may charge them for receiving text messages (SMS). Students should check their service agreement for details. Service costs from students' cellular providers are their responsibility.
 
Under what circumstances will a student receive an EaglesEye Alert?
EaglesEye Alert messages are used to notify students and employees during emergencies that threaten life, safety or property and/or severely impacts normal campus/college operations. No "SPAM" will be sent.
 
What are the optional weather alerts?
On the signup page, students may check a box to receive weather warnings (based on NOAA information) for severe thunderstorms, winter storms, flash floods and tornados. These messages are automatically generated for each time a severe weather warning is issued by the National Weather Service for Laramie County. To reduce the number of messages, students will not receive warnings for "Alerts" or "Advisories."
 
How many messages will students receive?
Those signing up for emergency alerts will probably only receive two to four messages each year based on the number of times campus usually closes each year. However, if there's a more serious type of campus emergency, numerous messages may be sent in a single day to make sure everyone has the latest information. LCCC also plans to conduct a test message each semester to verify a student's subscription to this service and to ensure the system is working properly.

Will the system work if there is a power failure?
All systems including email and text message systems are subject to failure due to emergencies or disasters. While this is a valuable addition to LCCC's existing emergency notification systems, the college can't guarantee that it will work in all emergencies.
 
How does a student unsubscribe?
At any time students can simply return to their EaglesEye account, go to the EaglesEyeAlert page and click the "Stop Alerts" links.

How do students update their information if their contact information has changed?
The way the system is currently configured, students just need to unsubscribe their old number and resubscribe with their new information.

Should students register their campus phone number?
Registering a campus phone (residence hall landlines and office landlines) to receive voice messages is recommended only if students don't monitor their cell phone while they're on campus. Tests have revealed that the campus phone system can't handle the hundreds of simultaneous incoming calls that would be required to reach all campus phones.
 
If a student doesn't like texting, should they still register their cell phone?
Yes. Students can sign up to receive computer-generated voice messages on their cell phone. This is a good option for those who don’t like text messaging and those who want to avoid text messaging charges from their phone carrier.
