Crisis Communications

Emergency Notification System

Arcadia’s Emergency Notification System, SendWordNow, is used for campus emergency announcements, including weather-related closings or delays. The system sends an e-mail and text messages to all registered users in the event of an incident posing an immediate threat to life safety.

  • System is for students, staff, and faculty.
  • Text, voicemail and Arcadia e-mail messages sent simultaneously to all recipients enrolled in the system.
  • Notifications sent to Arcadia’s Facebook page and Twitter feed.
  • Recipients reminded automatically to review contact information once a semester.
