Alerts are our emergency notification system for the PCC homepage. When an alert is issued a notice will appear in red near the top of the homepage. If additional information is available, the alert may include links to other documents. Every attempt is made to keep the text for an alert consistent with the message broadcast via other communication channels to avoid confusion.
Alerts will not be displayed for closures due to scheduled events, such as national holidays. It is also college practice to not announce openings (e.g., we won't post a "college open" alert even following a closure).
In most cases alerts are used for closures related to weather events. During periods of questionable weather, the Web Team posts an announcement to educate our audience on where to look for closure information.
Alerts are posted by the Web Team upon direction from college administrators.
