New River Community and Technical College provides an Emergency Alert System to communicate quickly with the New River educational community regarding campus closings and emergency situations.
The College portal (http://my.newriver.edu) is the delivery system for the Emergency Alert System and even without taking any action all users will receive emergency notifications via a pop-up message in the portal as you login and as an email sent to your New River inbox. A third method for receiving the notifications uses text messaging to your cell phone and requires users to complete a short form, available in the College portal, to provide your cell phone number and carrier information. Once a user completes the form, notifications will be received using all three methods.
If you have difficulties or questions, please contact the Help Desk (304-929-6725) for assistance.
