Baker Alert System
The Baker Alert System notifies the campus community of emergencies and threats to physical safety in emergency situations: tornado, violence, hazardous material incident, college closure, etc. Notification is by cell phone, landline phone, e-mail and text-message.
Baker Alert allows administrators to send recorded emergency messages to students, faculty and staff by cell phone, landline phone, e-mail, and text-message within minutes.
When a threat or campus emergency is identified, Baker Alert uses contact information from the college's official directory data (updated via the SOLAR System) to simultaneously send thousands of messages directly to students, faculty, and staff using cell phone numbers, home phone numbers, office phone numbers, e-mail and text messages. The entire campus community can be notified in about 20 minutes.
The system automatically includes all current students, faculty, and staff on a specific campus, based on their presence in the Baker Directory. However, you should make sure the SOLAR System Directory has up-to-date information for you. And if you want to be notified by cell phone, voice, and/or text-message, you'll need to make sure your appropriate numbers are included in the Baker Alert database.
If you want to change your emergency contact information, log in to the SOLAR System and edit your contact information to add or check your emergency contact number(s). You are the only person who can update this data. Please review it carefully.
