Alert Systems


Federal law requires Patrick Henry Community College to immediately notify the campus community upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health and safety of students or staff occurring on campus by activating PHCC ALERT, NetSupport Notify and utilizing the PA/Radio system…unless issuing a notification will compromise efforts to contain the emergency.

  • PHCC Alert
  • Mass emails to employees and students
  • NetSupport Notify Console
  • PA/Radio communication system
  • PHCC “Dark Site” web site (Appendix M)
