As people in Texas continue to clean up from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and now eyes are turning to watch Hurricane Irma, GC Public Safety wants to make sure you are prepared. Throughout the month of September, we will highlight specific topics but let’s first focus on the basics. "Disasters don’t plan ahead. You can." Make an emergency plan today. Public Safety encourages all students, faculty and staff to visit Ready GA to make a plan for yourself and family to include pets.
Another important component to being prepared, is staying informed. Public safety officials use notification systems to alert you and your family in the event of natural or man-made disasters. Ensure you are signed up to receive these important alerts and warnings. Visit GC Alert to find out how to update and verify your information to receive emergency notifications from Georgia College. All faculty, staff and students are automatically enrolled into GC ALERT with their Georgia College email but you will need to enter additional information.
*All GC email accounts are subject to receive these official notifications. If residing in Baldwin County, you may also want to sign up to receive Baldwin County Alerts, otherwise search online or contact your local emergency management agency to find out how to receive local alerts for your area.
