You do not have to have a Twitter account to sign up to receive emergency text messages. The college's Twitter account will deliver them to your mobile device when you sign up. Please be aware that when you sign up, you will receive a confirmation message, along with LCC's most recent text message, according to your carrier's specifications. Standard text messaging charges apply.
Should you decide you no longer want to receive them, you can easily opt out (stop) them.
To get closure and other emergency information by text message, via the college's Twitter account, simply:
Upon sign-up, you will receive several auto-messages from Twitter:
Text "OFF LowerCC_Alerts" (without the quotation marks) to 40404 to stop receiving alerts.
This is an entirely voluntary service and the college is not able to determine who does or doesn't follow us via text messages. Messages sent via this Twitter account are emergency only. Each quarter a 'test' message is sent to make sure the Twitter account is operating correctly.
LCC subscribes to FlashAlert to provide closure information to major media outlets (such as TV and radio). Individuals can also sign up to receive the information directly from FlashAlert.
