Rave Alert is a mass notification system that enables SKC to quickly communicate emergency information to their students, faculty, and staff. The system allows campus safety officials to send alerts via multiple communication channels, including email, text message, voice message, social media, and digital signage.
In the event of an emergency, campus safety officials can use the Rave Alert system to quickly send out emergency notifications to students, faculty, and staff via the configured channels. For example, suppose there is a bear on campus. In that case, campus safety officials can text all students, staff, and faculty, alerting them to the situation and advising them to seek shelter.
Rave Alert also allows users to send non-emergency messages to targeted groups, such as class cancellations or reminders about upcoming events.
Students are automatically enrolled in Rave Alert. You can opt out of the system by texting "Stop" to 67283.

You will be sent messages from what are know as short codes. The messages will come from either 67283 or 226787. We encourage you to save these numbers into your phone so you will recognize them when messages are sent. Some smaller carriers do not support short code messaging. For these carriers, you will receive messages from @getrave.com.
To stop getting message, you may login to the getrave.com site and remove your number, or text the word, “STOP” to 67283.
