Our emergency text alert carrier (AlertU) will no longer be offering its service after August 15, 2014.
We have a new text alert carrier called Nixle. If you wish to receive an emergency text message from our new carrier, Nixle, we ask you to subscribe as follows. There is no cost to the subscriber; however, standard messaging rates may apply.
To opt-in and receive any future emergency text alerts for GCC, please text the two words GO GCCALERT to the number 888777 from your cell phone. You will receive a confirmation text that says “Nixle Local Alerts Welcome to GCCALERT.” By receipt of that text message, you will have opted-in to the Nixle system and you will receive future emergency text alerts regarding any campus emergency. You do not need to accept or acknowledge the text message.
After August 15, 2014, the AlertU platform will no longer be available for emergency text notifications. In order to receive a GCC text alert notification after that date, you will have to opt-in to the Nixle emergency text alert system as noted above. If you have any questions, please contact the Glendale College Police Dept. at 818-551-5205.
