Emergency Communications

Students, faculty and staff can receive their emergency alerts from Lake Washington Institute of Technology's Emergency Communication Notification System. LWTech uses two campus emergency alert systems to notify students, faculty, staff, the community, and the media when campus activities are affected due to unexpected circumstances. Emergency alert updates are also posted on Facebook and Twitter.

Omnilert Emergency Alert System


The Omnilert system is capable of sending emergency notifications instantly and simultaneously to all registered mobile phones, wireless PDAs, pagers, smartphones, satellite phones, and email addresses. The system is also capable of posting alerts on our Facebook page and Twitter accounts.

If you already have an Omnilert account, you will need to re-apply as all accounts are purged after two years.
