08:23:00 Campus Emergency Alert System - Tiger Alert


  1. Introduction:
    1.  ChSCC's Emergency Alert System - Tiger Alert is an important aspect of ensuring campus safety during emergency situations and when information needs to be quickly communicated with all staff/faculty/students.
  2.  Purpose:
    1. The purpose of this policy is to establish a standard for how/when and by whom the system is to be used.
  3. Scope:
    1. The scope of this policy includes all staff, faculty, adjuncts, students and various other identified people that need to be notified during emergencies, such as CDC and vendors that work on campus. Everyone is automatically signed up for receiving email notifications to their specific official campus email address. Each individual has the ability to opt-in for other communication avenues such as cell phone/ text and/or other email addresses. Instructions on how to opt-in are located in appendix A of this policy and on TigerWeb
  4. Responsibility and Authority for Sending Campus Wide Communications:
    1. Emergencies: During emergencies, ChSCC Chief of Police is the designated authority for sending out Tiger Alert communication. Any request for sending out a Tiger Alert notice will be sent to the ChSCC Command Center (located within OMNI 151). For further guidance on emergency requirements, please review the ChSCC Emergency Plan located on TigerWeb. Other types of information such as: school closings, bad weather, disasters and crisis situations are all considered to be emergencies and the information sent out through Tiger Alert, and other communication avenues as directed.
    2.  Non Emergencies Use: Campus-Wide use of the Tiger Alert System for non-emergency communication is not appropriate.  Other campus notification systems such as Campus Announcement and/or Exchange distribution lists are in place to provide an avenue for communication. At their discretion, the President and Vice Presidents can send emails to the entire campus directly from their email accounts on behalf of themselves or those within their departments using the Campus.Announcement email account. Please review IT Policy 08:19:00 Campus Email Messages and Announcements located on TigerWeb on how to utilize these options.
    3.  Organizational Use: Each VP has been given the authority to send out alerts using this system for communication to their specific organization only, not to the whole campus. To request  individual groups be created, enter a Computer Services work order (located on Tiger Web) and include a list of all individuals to be included and what you want the group name to be. If someone other than a VP is required to be able to send out alerts using the organization groups, enter a CS work order, list the name of the individual and their A#. Once they have been granted this additional access, the individual will be required to attend a short training meeting given by CS. The individual will be notified of this training by CS.
