About Rave

What is Rave?
Rave is an notification messaging service. The system will allow Erie Community College to communicate on matters of CRITICAL EMERGENCIES with all members of the college community in addition to opt-in notifications for general information.
What can the system do?
Rave can provide critical emergency-related information including instructions and recommended protective actions, developed in real-time by emergency service personnel. The information will be disseminated through various communications systems such as e-mail, cell phones and SMS (text).
What type of situations will trigger use of the system?
The system will be used for issues involving a concern for life-safety, such as severe weather warnings, hazardous materials spills, ongoing violent incidents, and other dangerous emergency conditions. The system will also be used as a general announcement system and to provide "news" on an opt-in basis.
How do I enroll?
All faculty and staff are automatically enrolled with only their ECC email address. Students are automatically enrolled on the first day of classes with only their ECC email address. At any time, you may log in and add additional communication methods such as a personal email address, voice and text telephone numbers.
How do I change my settings?
Adding additional email, phone or text addresses can be made at http://rave.ecc.edu.
Will it cost me anything to participate in Rave?
No. Rave is being provided as a FREE service. However, if you provide a cell/text number, your standard messaging rates will apply by your service provider plan.
