Frequently Asked Questions

What types of messages are considered emergency messages?

Emergencies are considered any event that poses a safety risk to the campus community. For example, the most common uses of the alert will be to communicate when the college is closed due to power outages or inclement weather. Other types of emergencies may include unexpected occurrences such as earthquakes or any unexpected event that poses danger or puts your safety at risk.

Will I get SPAM or advertisements?

No, never. We respect your privacy and you will never receive anything except for official UW Bothell/Cascadia emergency communications.

Is there a charge for the service?

Neither Cascadia nor UW Bothell will charge you. However, you are responsible for paying any messaging charges that might be associated with your wireless carrier plan.
