Blinn Alert

Blinn College Alert System

How Blinn Alert Works

The Blinn Alert System allows the college to rapidly communicate important, campus-related emergency notifications to students, faculty and staff by sending text/voice messages and e-mail. The system is active and ready for use, but it is only as good as the contact information it contains. In order to send you emergency text messages and other alerts, you must provide your contact information.
