Campus Alerting System

Public Address System

RRC’s Notre Dame Campus, the Roblin Centre, the Paterson GlobalFoods Institute and Stevenson Campus are equipped with public address systems covering hallways and most large common areas.

In the event of an urgent security threat, students, staff and visitors will be advised to get to a safe place and lock the door.

Pre-recorded messages will be transmitted over the system.

SMS Text Alerts

Red River College has an SMS text alerting system in place which will send time-stamped text messages to registered subscribers to alert them to an immediate threat to health and safety or of a campus closure.

Students and staff can register for the service on HUB.

Note: this service is only available to MTS subscribers and there is no charge for this service. 

Desktop Alerts

RRC has added desktop alerting to its emergency communications. The software sends an emergency alert to all managed Windows-based workstations throughout the College. The full-screen message will advise staff and students of any emergency situation which may impact safety and security. Once the alert has been received, the user can minimize the screen by clicking on the Acknowledge button.

The following campuses are currently included in the desktop alerting:

  • Notre Dame Campus
  • Exchange District Campus
  • Stevenson Aviation Winnipeg
  • Language Training Centre
