    Copper Mountain College announced today that they have activated AlertU, an emergency alert notification system that enables the college to send critical text updates to students, faculty and staff during a campus emergency. With AlertU, school administrators can send text alerts to subscribers’ mobile devices and communicate critical information in real-time.

    “Finding new ways to help keep our students and employees safe is always a top priority, and AlertU is another tool for our campus to help us stay informed and connected,” said Dr. Roger Wagner, Superintendent/President,
    CMC.

    AlertU is an easy-to-use, web-based, emergency SMS text alert notification platform designed by Waterfall Mobile for enterprises, institutions and school campus communities. There are no fees to subscribers for enrolling in the service; however, standard text message rates apply.

    “AlertU is a great way to mobilize large campus communities quickly and easily,” said Jason Saroyan, Director of Business Development, Waterfall Mobile. “With AlertU’s patent-pending 2-way messaging, emergency administrators can gather real-time updates from crisis zones and relay critical information.”

    AlertU is available to
    Copper Mountain College students, faculty, staff and campus community. Friends and family are also able to receive alert updates.
