Emergency Alert Notification

OFTC has an on-campus alert system where students and employees are notified of emergency situations. The alert systems on each campus will be used as a “Best Effort” attempt to notify faculty/staff and students of any event which may affect the opening/closing of the college, require a campus lock down, evacuation or other event, as determined necessary by authorized officials of the College. The Emergency Procedures Guide for each campus spells out specific procedures to take in the event of an on-campus emergency.

These web sites allow faculty, staff, students and visitors to set up an emergency alert notification on their cell, pager or email. Persons in our service area can check for alerts while at home or at school.
