Alert U

Wireless Emergency AlertsKnow what is happening in an emergency on campus

MJC is now offering the Alert U emergency SMS messaging platform to enhance our emergency communications during crisis situations. Alert U will allow us to broadcast critical information in real time to mobile devices. This is particularly important for people who may be in or near a crisis zone.

How it works

  • You will never receive any mobile spam.
  • No personal information will ever be shared with anyone.
  • Only MJC College Administrators will have access to the alerting system.
  • The Alert U system will only be used to test the system quarterly and in the event of an emergency/crisis.
  • This service is free, though standard text message rates do apply.

Sign up today for ALERT U - MJC Emergency Alerts

It's easy to sign up. To subscribe simply:

  • Text MJC to 55155 (short code)
  • You’ll receive a short message: “You’ve signed up for MJC Emergency SMS Alerts.” You are done.
    • Additional information tells you to Text “STOP” to end the service to your cell phone; or
    • Text “HELP” for more information.
