Emergency Alerts

Our emergency notification system is designed to quickly send text or voice messages to mobile phones, land lines and e-mail accounts whenever there is a campus situation YOU need to know about.
 
Woman on cellWhen you sign up, you can choose how you want to be notified if there is a college emergency, such as a dangerous situation on campus. Signing up for text messages is probably a good choice for most users. But you may also wish to add a land line for receiving voice messages or a personal e-mail account. This system will also be used for letting you know if the campus is closed due to a snowstorm. You won’t even have to get out of bed to find out if classes are canceled!

Signing Up

To sign up, go to your EaglesEye account and click on "My EaglesEyeAlert" under the "MyCruiser" tab to get a full list of options. You can also choose to add severe weather warnings. If the National Weather Service issues a severe weather warning, you’ll be automatically notified.

FAQ

Is there a charge for registering to receive messages?
This is a free service provided by Laramie County Community College. However, your cell phone provider may charge you for receiving text messages (SMS). Check your service agreement for details. Service costs from your cellular provider are your responsibility.
 
Under what circumstances will I receive an EaglesEye Alert?
EaglesEye Alert messages are used to notify students and employees during emergencies that threaten life, safety, or property and/or severely impacts normal campus/college operations. No "spam" will be sent.
 
What are the optional weather alerts?
On the signup page, you may check a box to receive weather warnings (based on NOAA information) for severe thunderstorms, winter storms, flash floods and tornados. These messages are automatically generated for each time a severe weather warning is issued by the National Weather Service for Laramie County. To reduce the number of messages, you will not receive warnings for "Alerts" or "Advisories."
 
How many messages will I receive?
Those signing up for emergency alerts will probably only receive two to four messages each year, based on the number of times campus usually closes each year. However, if there is a more serious type of campus emergency, numerous messages may be sent in a single day to make sure everyone has the latest information. Laramie County Community College also plans to conduct a test message each semester to verify your subscription to this service and to ensure the system is working properly.

Will the system work if there is a power failure?
All systems, including e-mail and text message systems are subject to failure due to emergencies or disasters. While this is a valuable addition to our existing emergency notification systems, we cannot guarantee that it will work in all emergencies.
I don’t want to receive messages anymore.
 
How do I unsubscribe?
At any time, you can simply return to your EaglesEye account, go to the EaglesEyeAlert page and click the "Stop Alerts" links.

How do I update my information if my contact information has changed?
The way the system is currently configured, you’ll just need to unsubscribe your old number and resubscribe with your new information.

Should I register my campus phone number?
Registering your campus phone (residence hall land lines and office land lines) to receive voice messages is recommended only if you do not monitor your cell phone while you are on campus. Tests have revealed that the campus phone system cannot handle the hundreds of simultaneous incoming calls that would be required to reach all campus phones.
 
I don’t like texting. Should I still register my cell phone?
Yes. You can sign up to receive computer-generated voice messages on your cell phone. This is a good option for those who don’t like texting messaging and those who want to avoid text messaging charges from their phone carrier.
