WITC's Alert System

The Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College Emergency Notification System, "WITC Alert", is intended to give students, faculty, and staff timely notification of campus emergencies, including campus closures due to weather or non-weather related circumstances, and lock down situations.

The emergency notification system is capable of sending users text, voice, and email messages, as well as a full-screen pop up alert on all PCs and Macs on campus.

WITC will make every effort to inform all users of an emergency in a timely and appropriate manner, but cannot guarantee performance of the system and disclaims liability for messages delayed or not received due to technological limitations or human error.
