The British Columbia Institute of Technology has an emergency warning alert system – BCIT ALERT – designed to keep the BCIT community connected to key information, and to ensure the continued safety of students and staff at the institute.
BCIT ALERT will only be used in urgent or emergency situations and snow closures to send a short message to your mobile device, email address or voicemail. The exception is an annual test of the system to all registrants. In order to receive these messages, you must register with the service.
We encourage you to register for BCIT ALERT, and stay informed. For more information about campus safety and how to prepare for an emergency, visit Safety, Security and Emergency Management.
