In addition to CCS Alerts and In Case of Crisis, CCS employs several other communication methods in the event of an emergency:
Dial 533-3303 to reach the CCS Operations Hotline. If CCS operations are affected by severe weather, or any other type of emergency, the hotline is updated, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Note: It’s a looping message, so there may be a delay as calls are answered in the order they’re received.

In the event of an emergency, updates on CCS operations are posted to CCS website home page as they become available. These messages also are relayed to websites managed by SCC and SFCC.
Follow CCS on Twitter for emergency messaging and more.
If possible, CCS also informs local news media about weather-related school -- and other --closures and delays. This includes our three primary television stations (KREM-TV Channel 2, KXLY-TV Channel 4 and KHQ-TV Channel 6), plus radio stations KXLY-AM 920, KGA-AM 1510, KDRK-FM 93.7, and KPBX-FM 91.1.
In the event CCS computer systems are disabled and we lose the ability to communicate via the website, CCS Operations Update, a CCS operations blog, can be activated to provide up-to-date operations-related information.
