SAFE (Simpson Alert For Emergencies) is our emergency communication system that allows us to send time-sensitive notifications via voice messages, emails, and text messages. The SAFE service can deliver one prerecorded message to up to six phone numbers, two email addresses, and one text message. In all, the multi-modal service helps officials reach out to students and staff via:
- Voice messages to home, work, and cell phones
- Text messages to cell phones, PDAs and other text based devices
- Written messages to e-mail accounts
- Messages to TTY/TDD receiving devices for the hearing impaired
Although only Simpson college students, faculty, and staff can register for the SAFE system, students can sign up parents, other family members, or friends by designating more than one mobile device to their account.
