You are able to update your Emergency Contact Information by logging on to the FirstCall site. You can also add additional contacts for emergency alerts.
Alerts can be made to any type of communication method: email, cellular, landline or SMS (Text Messaging). In the case of an emergency, you may receive notification via one or all of these communication methods. FirstCall recommends that you provide several options of each media type in the event a particular communication device is unavailable.
The phone number fields are optional. You can use any combination of cellular, landline, office phone, etc. In an emergency, an alert would be sent to both Primary and Secondary phone listings.
Q: What is considered a primary phone number?
A: The suggested immediate phone (cell or landline) number is the one where you can be reached immediately while at BPCC.
Q: What is considered a secondary phone number?
A: This could be your office phone, home number, etc.
Q: Why do I have to enter two email addresses?
A: You will get a notification to both e-mail addresses if the Secondary Address is populated.
Q: What is SMS and how should I use it?
A: The SMS field (for Text Messaging) only needs to be completed if you have Text Messaging capabilities on your phone device and if you want to receive that type of alert.
