Omnilert is MCAD’s emergency notification system. Subscribers utilizing this free service will be alerted to on campus emergency situations or campus closures via text, email. In addition to emergency notifications, important announcements from MCAD may be sent through Omnilert.
Two new additions this year that will be available are the Panic Button and Tip features.
The Panic Button can be used in situations when you think your personal safety may be at risk. It will send a notification to the Campus Safety emergency line or 9-1-1 sending a geo-location signal to Campus Safety to aid in response if necessary.
The Tip feature can allow users to easily submit information, anonymously (if desired) to Campus Safety. Some examples of Tip information could include maintenance issues, suspicious activity, safety hazards and more.
Subscribing is easy!
