Stay Informed in an Emergency! Sign Up for the LIM College Emergency Notification System
Receive urgent messages by email, phone, and text
In the Fall of 2008, LIM College implemented an Emergency Notification System. This means that in the event of an emergency that directly affects the safety of our students, faculty and staff we are able to quickly communicate important information to everyone who is registered with this system. You are able to receive messages in a number of ways simultaneously - including by email, phone calls, and through text messages.
To remain active in the Emergency Notification System, you must sign up for it at the start of every academic year. All registration information entered before August 8, 2009 has been cleared out. So even if you already signed up during the last academic year, you must re-register now.
In keeping with best practices at colleges and universities throughout the country, it is now mandatory that all members of the LIM College community (including faculty, staff and students) register with the Emergency Notification System. Any information you enter will only be used to contact you with urgent messages regarding campus safety or unscheduled College closings.
You can access the sign-up page here. All you have to do is fill out the form on this page and then you can update, change or add to that information at any time via LIM College’s website.
Some things to be aware of as you sign up:
- Do not list LIM College’s main number (212-752-1530) as your phone number. You will not be able to receive messages on this line.
- Email alerts will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add that sender to your “safe” list for the external email address you enter during sign-up.
- Phone (voice) alerts will be sent from 866-669-9442. Please program that number into your caller ID as “LIM College Alert” on the phone number(s) you enter during sign-up.
If you experience any problems during the sign-up process, please email email@example.com
A list of FAQ with more detailed information on the Emergency Notification System is available here. Please read it carefully.
The safety of our students, faculty and staff is of the utmost concern, so we encourage you to sign up right away.
