McMurry University has recently adopted a new notification system, McM Alert, that enables the university to send urgent news to students/parents/staff via their cell phones. When you sign up for the service, the university can text you with timely information about emergencies, weather warnings, or class cancellations. Depending on your personal cell phone plan, there may be a nominal fee from your carrier to receive text messages, but there is no charge from the university to use the service.
McM Alert, powered by e2Campus, enables school officials to send instant alerts directly to registered subscribers’ email accounts and mobile phones via SMS text messages. Subscribers can also receive the alerts via RSS, wireless PDA, and through “My Yahoo”, “My AOL”, or personalized iGoogle home page. McM Alert will be used to communicate important information during any potential emergency, such as a snow delay or closing, homeland security advisory, weather warning, gas leak, fire, crime watch, or power failure.
When time is of the essence, McM Alert allows the university to provide immediate notification to the McMurry family, whether they are on or off campus. The McMurry Emergency Response Team (MERT) is urging the entire campus community to register. Please complete the on-line form below. If you have questions, please contact Vanessa Roberts, Dean of Students, at (325) 793-4680 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
