Campus Emergency Communications
Connect-ED is an emergency notification service that enables Pomona College to notify you
quickly about a major emergency on campus and to provide you with information and instructions.
Messages are sent via phone, text and email. Students, faculty and staff with a listed campus phone
number are in the Connect-ED database. To add a cell phone number or direct office line to the
Connect-ED system, log on to the campus portal at my.pomona.edu and click on the Connect-
ED link (far left). All contact information included in Connect-ED will be used ONLY for campus
emergency notification and will NOT be made available to any other service. Emergency drills
have shown that text messages arrive fastest.
Campus Public Alert System
Pomona College has 49 emergency telephones located throughout the campus that can be used
as a public address system. In an emergency, the phones will be used to broadcast warning tones
and short messages. The phones, which are topped by blue lights, can also connect a user directly
to Campus Safety, when the red button is pushed.
In the event of an emergency, regular updates will be posted our on-campus Emergency Web,
at www.pomona.edu/emergency. There is also an off-campus Emergency Web address, which
will remain available even in the event that public access to the Pomona Web is interrupted. Our
off-campus Emergency Web is located at www.pomonaemergency.info.
