Emergency Notification System - CPTCWarn

Clover Park Technical College has teamed up with RAVE for our official emergency notification system CPTCWarn. In the event of a campus event that poses a threat to the CPTC community and/or impacts College operations, an emergency notification message will be deployed via text messages and email.

For this emergency notification service, CPTC uses the Rave Alert System. Anyone can elect to receive text notifications to their personal devices and/or emails to their email address at no cost (standard or other text messaging charges may apply depending upon your wireless carrier plan and subscription details).

Emergencies are considered any event that poses a safety risk to the campus community. For example, the most common use of CPTCWarn will be to communicate when the college is delayed or closed due to inclement weather. Other types of emergencies may include unexpected occurrences such as earthquakes or power outages, or any unexpected event that poses danger or a threat.

  • Text messages: Text messages sent from CPTCWarn are sent using something called shortcodes. When you receive a text via a shortcode, you’ll receive a message from 78015 which may appear as xxx-xx, for example, "780-15." If your carrier or phone does not support short code messaging, messages you receive will appear to come from
  • Email messages: Email messages sent from CPTCWarn will be sent from the email address: Please be sure this email address is not blacklisted or blocked by your email providers.

If you have no affiliation with CPTC and have received an emergency alert from our system, it’s likely that your phone number was previously used by someone who had signed up for CPTCWarn. Opt out of receiving these text messages by texting the word STOP to 78015. These instructions should also be included in the text of every message you receive.

The CPTCWarn system will not charge you in any way. However, you are responsible for paying all messaging charges associated with your wireless carrier plan.

CPTCWarn supports all U.S. mobile carriers.

If you change your mobile number, please log in to the system and update your contact details. To ensure you do not miss any emergency messages, you may also simply log in to the system and update your carrier information in your settings directly.
