NCC ALERTS is Nashua Community College’s emergency notification system that will help ensure rapid and reliable mass communication to students, faculty, and staff. The NCC ALERT system is designed to communicate with cell phones (text and voice messages), landlines, and e-mail systems, should there be a crisis, emergency situation, or weather closure/delay on the NCC campus.
