Emergency Message Alerts

Macomb Community College offers an emergency messaging alert system as part of its comprehensive emergency preparedness plan to quickly notify students, faculty and staff of campus emergencies or campus closures via SMS text message, email, voice message or any combination of the three.  Participation is completely voluntary.

In the event of a campus emergency, it is vital that Macomb Community College is able to contact you as quickly as possible with critical information regarding campus emergencies or closures. We strongly encourage you to sign up today.
