DMC Alert

Introduction
Del Mar College has developed DMC Alert to disseminate critical information in the event of a crisis which may disrupt the normal operation of Del Mar College or threaten the health or safety of members of the Del Mar College community.

DMC Alert is offered on a voluntary self-subscription basis for current faculty, staff, and students at Del Mar College.

DMC Alert delivers messages to subscribers on a "best effort" basis to email and to Short Message Service (SMS) text-capable wireless devices, such as many cellular telephones. Additional delivery options are planned in future phases of the DMC Alert system.

DMC Alert is a personalized service that is designed to complement other tools already used by Del Mar College to communicate with the college community during crises or emergencies. Examples include:

Special alerts posted on the Del Mar College Web sites:
Del Mar College Homepage

Del Mar College important phone numbers:
DMC Security (24 Hour) 361/698-1199
DMC Employee Emergency Information 361/698-1500
DMC Events and Activities Line 361/698-1600

Email sent to all current faculty, staff, and students via DMCALL
Official messages disseminated via the local media

Effective emergency response requires personal preparedness and planning. While no emergency
communication system can be guaranteed to be effective and reliable in every situation, we encourage you to sign up for DMC Alert as one part of your emergency preparedness plan.
