In accordance with the Clery Act, LIM College will notify the campus community without delay upon the confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or staff on campus. Warnings may only be withheld if they would compromise efforts to contain the emergency.
LIM COLLEGE EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
At LIM College we take the safety of our students, faculty and staff very seriously. We are committed to protecting the College community in the event of an emergency on campus or in New York City. To this end, the College uses the Everbridge system (aka LIM Alert) to quickly communicate to all students, faculty and staff in the event of an emergency or critical incident. Students, faculty and staff are automatically registered for this emergency mass notification system and can update their contact details via the Everbridge app.
When the LIM Alert system is activated, each member of the LIM community will receive a communication alert from LIM College authorities within minutes. The alert will be sent in multiple formats to multiple touchpoints, including emails to LIM and personal accounts, voice and text messages to cell phones, and/or land/desk lines. Additional contact information may be added or current information may be updated at any time via the Everbridge app.

EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM FAQ
How is an emergency being defined?
LIM College will only use Everbridge LIM Alert when it is imperative to contact students, faculty and staff as quickly as possible. This can include, but is not limited to, cancellation of classes or LIM College closures due inclement weather, a fire requiring the evacuation or closing of a building; or an ongoing criminal incident that requires members of the LIM College community to take action to ensure their safety. Email will still be used to provide important information in a timely manner for situations that do not rise to the level of an emergency.
What contact information do I need to provide?
Your contact details (phone #s, email address) on file with the Collge are automatically loaded into the Everbridge LIM Alert system. Your LIM College email account is also automatically included.

Once you're logged into the app, you can find and edit your contact info. in the "Profile" section of the main menu.
