BC Alert Emergency Notification System Overview

Delivery Methods

The BC Alert emergency notification system consists of the following delivery methods which are grouped into three categories primary, secondary, and tertiary. Broward College recognizes the following system as the standard by which all emergency communications will be initiated.

Primary

These are the primary notification methods that should be relied on the most. In any full-fledged warning, these methods will be utilized, in some cases where only a partial alert may be required, only a select few may be used:

Secondary

While many of the following delivery methods may also relay warnings, they are considered secondary because they may not be used in every case or may have some delay associated with them.

Tertiary

The following delivery methods may also relay emergency information, but they either have a substantial delay associated with them or are not within the direct administrative control of the College.
