Emergency Information & Planning

The Northland Emergency Information & Planning site is intended to assist employees and students in finding information during an emergency.

Star Alert

Star Alert, a free Northland emergency notification system, makes it possible for students and employees to receive notice – by cell phone and/or e-mail – of campus-related emergencies that threaten life safety or severely impact campus operations.

There is no need to register. Students & employees are automatically registered using information they have previously provided to the college. You may also provide additional numbers and/or addresses if you would want significant others to be aware of the situation. If you do not want this service, simply log in and follow the instructions to 'opt out'.

Staying Informed. Stay Safe.

In an emergency, Star Alert will send a text message to the cell number(s) and/or e-mail address(es) you provide. Notifications identified as “Star Alert” messages will note the nature of the emergency, what action, if any, you are to take, and where to find more information. Star Alert also will let you know if campus is closed or if classes are delayed or cancelled.

Star Alert notifications are in addition to any messages Northland Community and Technical College sends to all NCTC e-mail addresses when there is an emergency. Depending on the nature and severity of the emergency, other mechanisms may include alerts on the Northland Community and Technical College Web site and voicemail messages on campus phones. In emergency situations, an important resource for information is always the Northland Community and Technical College emergency Web site at www.northlandcollege.edu/emergency
