e2Campus Alert System was implemented in September 2007 to alert JCHS students, faculty, and staff in emergency situations and to keep the JCHS community informed of breaking news. The e2Campus Alert System allows the JCHS community to opt-in to an emergency alert system that delivers important notices to cell phones as text messages.
Jefferson College of Health Sciences students, faculty, and staff are not required to participate, but are encouraged to do so to protect yourself and others around you in case of emergency. Please note that by opting into this service, you may incur charges if your cell phone provider charges for incoming text messages.
Visit the e2Campus website for more information about the alert system and to sign up for the service.
