This system also has the ability to send text message alerts in these situations. Students who previously provided a cell phone number through the Rave Emergency Alert system or supplied a cell phone number during enrollment in courses at CCRI, will receive a text message through this system.

If you haven't previously supplied a cell phone number in one of the above situations and would like to enroll to receive text message alerts or update your cell phone number, visit the Rave Emergency Alert registration page.

Text message and data rates may apply. You may opt out of receiving text messages; please visit the Rave Emergency Alerts FAQs page for instructions on how to do so. If you opt out, you will still receive email alerts to your CCRI-issued email account.
