BerkAlert is Berkeley College's mass notification system. Prior to or during an emergency situation, Berkeley College will notify students, faculty, staff, and others of any pending emergency via text messaging and email. This allows the College 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 campuses affected by an emergency.
