City College of San Francisco To Deploy Emergency Notification System

City College of San Francisco (CCSF) said it will deploy the AlertU emergency alert notification system from Waterfall Mobile, becoming the 22nd district in the California Community Colleges System to implement the service.

"As one of the largest community colleges in the nation with 10 campuses and over 150 instructional sites in San Francisco, it is imperative we react quickly and efficiently during an emergency," said Peter Goldstein, vice chancellor. "AlertU gives us the ability to communicate critical information and updates to our campus community, at anytime from anywhere, and monitor alerts and responses."

CCSF administrators will be able to create emergency text messages, send alerts to targeted audiences, or broadcast school-wide emergency communications. The service's reporting and analytics provide tracking and monitoring combined with a two-way messaging system.

CCSF has 100,000 students, faculty and staff.
