DCCCD has partnered with Rave Mobile Safety to provide an emergency alert system capable of delivering messages to your DCCCD and personal email addresses, your land line and your cell phone.
The start of a new semester is a great time to confirm your contact information and choose your notification preferences. For example, you can opt out of receiving messages from the colleges you do not attend.
To manage your account, log in to the Rave Mobile Safety site at at getrave.com/login/dcccd.
(You can also get there from the main eConnect menu. Select "DCCCD Emergency Alerts Information.")
Once logged in to the Rave Mobile Safety site with your eConnect login ID and password, you can manage your account.
To add a phone number and/or email address, click on the "ADD" button.
To test your phone number and/or email address, click on the yellow "TEST" button.
To edit a phone number and/or email address, click on the "edit" button.
To opt out of specific college alerts, click the "Opt-in Lists" tab and uncheck the subscribe checkbox to stop receiving alerts from the desired college.
To save changes, when you finish editing, click the "EDIT" button to the right of your name and email address on the main screen. Then click the green "SAVE" button — you're done!
DCCCD has enrolled you in the Emergency Alerts program at no expense to you. You may, however, be charged a per-text message fee for delivery of emergency notifications to your phone depending upon your phone plan.
Updating your Emergency Alerts email address does not update the email address on file in your employee or student record.
For more information about emergency alerts from Dallas County Community College District, please visit dcccd.edu/alerts.
To update your personal emergency contact information, select "My Contact Information" in the main eConnect menu.
