CCS emergency notification procedures

Operations Hotline
Dial 533-3303 to reach the Community Colleges of Spokane Operations Hotline. If CCS operations are affected by severe weather, or any other type of emergency, the hotline is updated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
 
Note: It’s a looping message, so there may be a delay as calls are answered in the order they’re received.
 
CCS Operations Update (CCS website)
Log on to www.ccs.spokane.edu  In the event of an emergency, updates on CCS operations will be posted to CCS website home page as they become available. These messages also will be relayed to web sites managed by SCC, SFCC and the IEL.
 
CCS Alerts (E-mail and text messaging)
This e-mail and text message system is available by subscription. Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive e-mail and/or text messages regarding CCS emergency operations as they are generated. You can enter as many e-mail addresses and cell phone numbers as you like. To sign up, click on the CCS Alerts promo on the CCS website or your college/IEL site and follow the prompts (Note: Be sure to have your SID and PIN number handy!)
 
Local media
If possible, CCS also informs local news media about weather- related school -- and other --closures and delays. This includes our three primary television stations (KREM-TV Channel 2, KXLY-TV Channel 4 and KHQ-TV Channel 6), plus radio stations KXLY-AM 920, KGA-AM 1510, KDRK-FM 93.7, and KPBX-FM 91.1.

CCS Operations Blog
In the event of a serious emergency, CCS' web site could be disabled or overwhelmed by hits. This blog can be used as alternative form of communication with CCS students, faculty and staff. To log on, go to:
