About Emergency Text Messages

Lower Columbia College uses Twitter's text messaging service to notify students and the community about closures and other emergencies at the college.

This address of this Twitter account is http://twitter.com/LowerCC_Alerts.

You do not have to have a Twitter account to sign up to receive emergency text messages. The college's Twitter account will deliver them to your mobile device when you sign up. Should you decide you no longer want to receive them, you can easily opt out, unsubscribe or stop them.

How to Sign Up

To get closure and other emergency information by text message, via the college's Twitter account, simply:

  1. Put 40404 in the 'To' line of your text message
  2. Put Follow LowerCC_Alerts in the 'Body' of the text message

Upon sign-up you will receive several auto-messages:

  • Confirmation that you are following LowerCC _Alerts and explaining how to stop. This text may also suggest you try following other randomly generated Twitter accounts. Twitter auto-generates this promotion and you can ignore it.
  • The college's most recent text message.

How to Opt Out/Unsubscribe

To opt out, unsubscribe or stop receiving text messages, simply text Off, Stop, Quit, End, Cancel or Unsubscribe LowerCC_Alerts to the same number.

This is an entirely voluntary service and the college is not able to determine who does or doesn't follow us via text messages. Messages sent via this Twitter account are emergency only. Each quarter a 'test' message is sent to make sure the Twitter account is operating correctly.

Standard text messaging rates apply, based on your cell phone carrier and plan.

The Twitter account is managed by the Office of College Relations and Marketing. If you have any questions about Lower Columbia College's emergency Twitter account please feel free to contact us 360.442.2110.
