The Coker College Wireless Emergency Notification System, called the CobrAlert, is a mass notification system that enables students, faculty and staff to receive alerts and updates as text messages on cell phones and via e-mails on their computer. Participation by students, faculty and staff is voluntary.  It is available to all students, faculty and staff at all locations in which classes are offered. The notification system is through Inspiron Logistics. This service is free of charge although any charges for text messaging will be charged to the phone.

CobrAlert will relay emergency notification through cell phone, PDA, smart phones or email. With this system, College staff can notify the campus community that an emergency is occurring, provide instructions on who to proceed and when the emergency has ended.

The communication system will be employed should there be a significant weather emergency, a threat to the health or safety of students or staff, the need to seek shelter, to remain n a building/classroom or to evacuate buildings or campus. In addition to the CobrAlert, other methods the College uses in emergency situations are:

  1. telephone tree communications
  2. campus wide emails
  3. paper flyers and bulletin board postings including digital message boards
  4. person-to-person communication
  5. website postings
  6. campus wide two-way radio used by Campus Security Officers
  7. phone messages - the following phone numbers will have messages recorded that provide instruction and information concerning campus emergencies or inclement weather:
    + 843-383-8010
    + 843-383-8012
    + 843-383-8000
    + 843-383-8018

In the event of an emergency, Coker College crisis managers will be able to quickly and automatically send important notifications to participants.
