Get signed up for HC text alerts
By Thunderworld Staff
Increasing safety risks on campus suggest a need to sign up for Highline text alerts. On Friday, around 9 a.m., there were several reports of people hearing gunshots.
However, many students didn't know when they came to class later that day, because they weren't signed up for Highline alerts.
Highline alerts are in place to serve us all as a community and update us on the happenings of campus. There have been a number of security and safety risks that the Highline alerts have kept people updated on.
There has been an arson case, and a total school shut down, due to reports of gunfire, just in this quarter alone. You may be wary of signing up for alerts, due to bad experiences in the past, and admittedly you might get a message or two about weather being a risk to classes and building closures.
However, even if you view it as a nuisance, these alerts will also keep us all updated and prepared for whatever poses a threat or risk to safety on our own campus, plus it is free. You need to sign up and get alerted for your own safety on campus.
You can get your alerts via several mediums like: Facebook, Twitter, email, or text messages.
