Rave provides alerts and crisis information

How do students, faculty and administration find out if a water main breaks, severe weather, chemical spills, an electrical outage occurs or other crisis emergencies happen that would force the school campus to close? The Rave system provides the answer.

Many people throughout the college had discussed the Rave system for a number of years including administration, student government, faculty, and information technology.

These discussions lead up to the birth of the Rave system.

The system by default loads the information into Gmail and portable electronic devices. The system provides immediate responses for users that register their portable devices including cell phones. The minimum response will be the email announcement.

The goal for the Rave system is designed to have as much information as possible. School administration urge students to add additional alert information including cell phone numbers by logging into the system at the MATC website at the ‘RaveAlert System.'
