In the event anyone needs to immediately contact Security, a wall-mounted phone is now located outside of the Security Office, E145.
Users can directly dial on-duty security, on-duty Kirkland Police, custodial staff, or 911.
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.
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.
FlashAlert.net is an emergency alert system used by the media to announce school closures
and schedule changes. LWTech staff updates the Flash Alert system at the same time
Omnilert is updated. Messages are sent via email and text. A new addition is the FlashAlert
Messenger app for iOS and Android.
