Have you signed up for PacificCONNECT?PacificCONNECT emergency notification system

PacificCONNECT is the University's official emergency communication system that permits the Pacific Alert Team (PAT) to notify employees and students about campus emergencies via voice messages, emails, and text messages. This service enables the University to keep you informed in an emergency situation and send you instructions on what you need to do to stay safe.

In light of the tragic events at many colleges and universities over the last few years, the University's crisis response committee PAT has increased its efforts to provide a safe educational environment for the Pacific community. Along with PacificCONNECT, other efforts include a responsive and visible police force on campus, well-planned emergency procedures, and well-trained staff who are able to react quickly in a crisis. This past school year, the PAT was able to keep the University community informed during a major power blackout in Stockton that impacted most of the Stockton campus facilities and services.

As an employee, your work e-mails are already signed up for the system, but you can do more to make sure you receive messages when you are not checking e-mail. Registering additional contact information, such as your home and work numbers, your cell phone, text numbers; personal e-mail addresses, etc., will ensure that you receive timely notifications.

To register your contact information on PacificCONNECT, you will need to complete the following:
1.      Go online at http://InsidePacific.Pacific.edu
2.      Log in with your PacificNet ID and Password 
3.      Select the Administrative Tab
4.      Scroll down to the PacificCONNECT Box. It is often down towards the bottom left side of the screen.
5.      Select "Update your profile for Emergency Notifications."
6.      Enter in the contact information you prefer for notification.
7.      Press "Save"

This system will only be used to contact you in EMERGENCY situations such as severe weather alerts, building or campus concerns or life safety issues. In addition, the system is tested once per semester. The contact information you register will be kept confidential and will only be used in the event of an emergency and is used only for PacificCONNECT.
