To enhance the safety of students and visitors to Santa Barbara City College, the college has selected the AlertU platform to implement an emergency messaging system (EMS) to provide students and members of the community cell phone based text messaging in the case of an emergency.

The Santa Barbara City College - AlertU EMS is a web-based system intended for emergency text messaging only, using short message service (SMS) technology. 

Use of the Santa Barbara City College - AlertU system is open to all students and individuals that attend classes or activities at any of the college's locations. The Santa Barbara City College - AlertU system is completely voluntary and the user is required to Opt-in to enable their personal cell phone to send and receive messages in the case of an emergency. Santa Barbara City College - AlertU Subscribers can Opt-out at any time to discontinue the emergency messaging service.

Test messages will be sent to each user four times per year to insure the integrity of the system and each user will be charged standard text messaging rates by their cell phone service provider.
