SCC Alert Setup

<p>The SCC Alert notification system has added another layer of alert notifications for smart phones. The app is called <strong>SCC Alert</strong>. It will enable you, as a student or employee, to receive important alerts, keep yourself safe in an emergency, access resources, etc.</p> <p>You already receive important notifications from Southwestern Community College by email, text message, and voice calls, but now there’s an additional and better way to stay informed about weather closures, safety notifications, emergency alerts, important events, and more!</p> <p>The free SCC Alert App for iOS and Android allows us to communicate important notifications and alerts to you faster. When you download the app to your mobile phone, you can set your notification preferences so you only receive the alerts that are important to you. In the event of an emergency,  the app will also allow us to reach you based on your location as long as you enable location services.</p> <p>Download SCC Alert today and log in using your MySCC credentials.</p> <p><img alt="SCC Alert" src="/sites/default/files/news/2020-08/1.jpg" style="width: 225px; height: 225px;" /></p> <p><strong>Installation Steps:</strong></p> <ol> <li>Use the following links to install:<br /> iOS - <a href="https://apps.apple.com/app/id1527445988">https://apps.apple.com/app/id1527445988</a><br /> Android - <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cutcom.apparmor.southwesterncc">https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cutcom.apparmor.southwesterncc</a><br />  </li> <li>Click <em>Allow</em> to allow SCC Alert to send notifications to your mobile device. <p> <img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/news/2020-08/2.png" style="width: 400px; height: 711px;" /></li> <p></p> <li>Next tap <em>Login with SCC Credentials</em>. <p> <img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/news/2020-08/3.png" style="width: 400px; height: 711px;" /><br />  </li> <li>Enter your MySCC username and password.
