Alert System

In a continuing effort to communicate during times of emergency, PPCC is providing text messaging notification. Text messaging will only be used to communicate our emergency messages. Other notifications will continue to be delivered via other methods (e.g. emails or voice message to your home number). In order to receive an emergency text message, you must request or opt-in to the program, and you must have elected text messaging as an option from your phone service provider.

To update your contact information log into http://my.ppcc.edu/ and select the "Emergency Notification System." You will find the Emergency Notification System link under the "Safety & Security" channel on the "Welcome" tab. The login page has the login instructions in case you forgot them.
