Joliet JC Adopts MIR3 Emergency Notification Platform
Joliet Junior College
- By Dian Schaffhauser
will be deploying the MIR3 inCampusAlert
emergency notification service for its main campus in Joliet, IL and its extended campuses and extension centers. inCampusAlert allows for dissemination of information to and from cell phones, e-mail, pagers, land lines, and SMS.
"The safety and security of our students, faculty, and staff is a responsibility we take seriously," said Jim Serr, interim VP of learner support and technology services. "Our investment in MIR3 and its inCampusAlert notification system will allow us to communicate with anyone in the college community, on any device, and at a moment's notice."
MIR3's notification capabilities are also used for routine, high-volume messaging and all-purpose broadcasting, such as administrative notices to employees, messages for coordinating staffing, and weather updates.
