Emergency Information

Welcome to the Community Colleges of Spokane (CCS) emergency alert headquarters. In case of a campus emergency, CCS notifies all subscribers via SMS message, email, automated telephone message, on our social media channels and our websites with a red banner appearing in the header, and linking to this page where the entire message will be displayed. CCS uses Rave Mobile Safety to notify all students and staff associated with CCS. Everyone associated with CCS is automatically subscribed to our notification system. You then have the ability to manage your account by adding phone numbers, email addresses or unsubscribing if you choose. For more information on Rave Alerts, see our Rave Alerts section.

You can always check our Emergency Operations Hotline (509-533-3303) for information on emergency closures or delays. It is available 24/7 for your convenience.

If you’re having or witnessing an emergency, please dial 911.

For scenario and emergency preparedness planning, take a look at our Emergency Management Plan or our Emergency Management Plan Immediate Actions for Specific Emergencies.

Campus safety is our number-one priority at Community Colleges of Spokane. For more information on how we are constantly working to keep our campuses safe, visit the campus security pages.

Testing is an important part in ensuring emergency alert systems work as intended. Community Colleges of Spokane sends a test message to all our contacts four times a year on the fourth Thursday of the academic quarter. These messages are only a test. If you’re not receiving our tests, be sure to visit Rave Alerts and manage your contact info.

All students and staff in the Community Colleges of Spokane (CCS) database are automatically added to the Rave Alerts system. If the phone number on file is a mobile device, an SMS message and voice message should be sent out when alerts are pushed.
