Lethbridge College Alert

Lethbridge College Alert

Lethbridge College Alert is a comprehensive suite of software, hardware and procedures that comprise our emergency notification system to keep the college community safe and informed during emergencies and unexpected events on campus.

In case of an emergency, call 911 immediately. You can also then call campus security at 403-320-3206.

Website

The Lethbridge College website serves as the primary hub for information relating to emergencies and unexpected events. During an emergency or unexpected event, a red banner will span the top of the website, directing users to current and time-stamped information regarding the emergency or event.

Email

During emergencies or unexpected events, emails may be sent to campus members including students, staff and faculty. Due to the nature of email, the Lethbridge College website is the resource that will contain the most current information. Emails will direct campus members to the website for more information.

Social Media

Updates on emergencies or unexpected events will be posted to official Lethbridge College social media Twitter and Facebook accounts. If the Lethbridge College website or email are unavailable or inaccessible, check official social media channels for messaging and updates.

Informacast

Informacast is software that is used as part of Lethbridge College Alert to broadcast emergency messages over IP (landline) phones on campus. Messages are also broadcast as audio and text on emergency clocks located in strategic areas on campus.

System Testing

Lethbridge College will occasionally test Lethbridge College Alert services to ensure proper functionality of the software, hardware and procedures. Campus members will always be notified by email in advance of an upcoming drill.

Active Shooter video

This nine-minute Active Shooter video depicts a dramatization of an active shooting scenario and is supported by a voiceover and on-screen instructions. The instructions stress three courses of action in the event of an active shooter on campus: escape when possible; hide and barricade when necessary; and, as a final resort, use force against the assailant. The video, which was produced in 2014 by the Campus Alberta Risk and Assessment Committee (CARA) in partnership with Lethbridge College and other post-secondary institutions, is a powerful way to educate viewers on how to respond to an active shooter situation in three memorable steps: get out, hide, fight. As a reminder, in case of an emergency, call 911 immediately. You can also call campus security at 403-320-3206.

Please note the video content is a dramatization that some viewers may find disturbing.
