All college employees and students have a responsibility to engage in their own safety and security. As an institution, North Idaho College has several notification systems used during campus emergencies. The Alertus system utilizes a series of beacons that will sound an alarm in college buildings when activated as well as take over the screens of all networked computers with an alert message. In addition, the Cardinal Contact system sends alert messages via email, voicemail, and text to all contacts in the MyNIC system. Employees and students are automatically signed up to receive Cardinal Contact alert messages. Please ensure that you’ll receive alerts by checking your contact information in MyNIC.

The college will test emergency procedures each semester with a collegewide drill.
