Westmoreland County Community College Activates CruiserAlert Three Times in Two Days

Located on a rural 80-acre campus about 36 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, Pa., WCCC serves nearly 6,000 full- and part-time students in three counties. WCCC's emergency communications plan called for activation of a phone chain among the staff and 425 full- and part-time faculty. If just one person broke the chain, dozens of people could remain unaware of the emergency situation. As back-up, a voice message from the main campus switchboard alerted anyone who called into the college for information. Announcements posted on the WCCC home page (www.wccc.edu) and CampusCruiser portal also informed those who visited online. As a CampusCruiser customer since 2002, WCCC already had in place a secure communications portal that the college branded as "CampusConnections".
