Public Safety Writes:

Portland Community College (PCC) has a new emergency alert notification system that can send text messages, as well as emails in the event of an emergency or school closure.

Starting today, Monday, October 16, 2017, any faculty, staff or student will be able to sign up to receive PCC Alert.

Everyone with a PCC email can receive email alerts.  To receive PCC Alert text messages directly to your phone you must sign up and provide your cell phone number.  Simply follow these three simple steps.

1) Go to

2)  If you have not logged in before, login using your SSO (single sign on), which is the same username and password that you use for logging into MyPCC, or your college email.

3) Go to the upper right corner, where it says “Hi” and select user.  You will then be prompted to enter your name and mobile phone number.  You are now ready to receive PCC Alert text messages.

You can opt out at anytime. This system will only be used for emergencies where immediate notification is necessary (e.g lock out, lock down, evacuations, etc) or school closures. Within 2 – 3 weeks we will send a test message to all who have signed up for alerts.
