BerkAlert Berk-Alert is Berkeley College's mass notification system. Prior to or during an emergency situation, Berkeley College will notify students, faculty, staff, and others via text messaging, emails, cell phones, and home and business phones of any pending emergency.

The Berk-Alert emergency notification service allows Berkeley College to record, schedule, and send personalized voice and text messages to students, faculty, staff, and parents with one phone call. This allows us to reach everyone at a moment's notice should an emergency arise. The system can also send messages to a particular group. For example, calls may be directed only to locations affected by an emergency.
