Safety & Emergency Readiness

Closure Information

Alert messages are issued when it's determined that the campus community needs to take immediate action to remain safe, or to announce that a campus or center is unexpectedly closed. Here are the places you can receive alerts or look for closure information:

Sign up to receive alerts via text message

ReGroup will be used to communicate through campus email and text message(s) to personal cell phones.  For staff and students to receive text and/or voicemail alerts, they must provide their cell phone number in their WebRunner account information.

  • Log into WebRunner.
  • Select "Personal Information."
  • Click on "Update" or "Add" under Texting Number and add your cell phone number.
  • Select "Emergency and College Related" if wanting to get both emergency messages and important college-related text alerts.  Select "Emergency Only" if only wanting to receive emergency notifications.
  • Click "Submit."

LBCC website

In the event of an unscheduled closure, alerts will be displayed in red at the top of all pages on the LBCC website. If additional information is available, the alert may include links to other pages.
