Emergency Notification via Your Cell Phone

Last winter Cabrillo's Aptos campus lost power due to high winds. The emergency notification system was activated to inform students that evening classes were cancelled. You can sign up for this notification service by clicking on the link below. For notification of a larger emergency, you can sign up for the county-wide notification system below.

Cabrillo College is now offering an SMS-based emergency notification service for your mobile phone. In the event of an emergency, Cabrillo students, staff, faculty and others will be alerted in real-time important security information. Click here for more information and to sign up.

Santa Cruz County: If there is a wildfire near your home and the fire department needs to evacuate people, they will do a reverse 911 call to all homes in the area to inform them when and how evacuation will happen. However you might not be home when they call, so you can register your cell phone number so that when they call homes in your area your cell number will be on the call list too. This website is only for Santa Cruz County. Do it now, it only takes 1 minute....really. Santa Cruz Regional 9-1-1.
