Personal Mass Notification FAQs

NorQuest College has implemented a personal notification system that can be used to send emergency notification messages to employees and students.

When will the system be used?

The emergency notification system will be used during a major incident, crisis, or emergency.

Is my information secure?

Any information stored in the system is secure and your personal information is private and will not be shared. You are responsible for keeping your information up to date. NorQuest College cannot update your information for you.

Testing of the system

The system will be tested a minimum of two times per year. The message will clearly state that the notification is only a test.

What are the limitations?

  • Notification is on a best-effort basis. Subscribers should not rely solely on this service for emergency notification.
  • This service is reliant on third-party applications and equipment and is subject to the terms and conditions and service level agreement of the third party.
  • NorQuest is not responsible for message delays caused by telecommunications systems failures or transmission failures that are the responsibility of third parties such as the service provider, cellular network provider, or email provider.
  • Individual subscribers are solely responsible for maintaining current, correct contact information. NorQuest cannot update contact information for individual subscribers.
  • The system will be activated per the NorQuest emergency response plan.

What can you expect when the mass notification system is used during an emergency?

You will receive messages to the phone numbers and e-mail accounts that are registered with the system. The messages will provide information or direct you where to find more information.

What if I have other questions?
