Casper College Alert is our latest method of emergency notification. This wireless emergency notification system (WENS) allows Casper College students, employees, families, and friends to receive emergency text and email notifications.
The WENS system allows a “CC Alert” to be sent to your cell phone as a text message, to any phone as a voice message, or to your email address.
WENS is meant to be used for emergency and significant event notification only. The message may alert you to public safety emergencies on campus, school closings, or weather warnings, depending on the options you choose. The messages are short and meant only as an initial notification. In an emergency, you should check the Casper College website, your college email, and monitor local media for more detailed information as it becomes available.
Any working phone, whether mobile or landline, can receive voice messages. To receive text messages, you must have a phone that is capable of receiving text message.
