Emergency Notification for College of the Sequoias

The College of the Sequoia's Emergency Notification System uses two separate systems that enable fast and efficient dissemination of urgent information through email, text, District computers, alert devices and LED boards, and push notices through an application on smartphones and tablets.  Notifications can have information on any of the following that could have a serious or severe impact on campus activity or result in injury, property damage or both.  
  • College/Campus closings due to severe weather or any other related event
  • Police/Fire Emergencies that may affect the Academic Buildings or the entire campus.  
  • Natural, man-made or other serious events that impact the college operation in part or in whole
Regroup Email / Text Notices
As an employee or student of the college, you are automatically registered for Regroup Emergency Notices using your college email address and listed phone numbers.  To insure timely notification, it is important that you update your personal information in Banner Web to allow Regroup to reach your cell phone and/or most current email address.
