- Weather (snowflake), warning (triangle) or information (i) icon located under Alerts. A red bar will appear at the top of the RCC home page and the second level pages with the alert message.
- Alerts Page: Everything points to www.roguecc.edu/Alerts. This is the official source for the most up-to-date emergency information and announcements. Within minutes, emergency and administration officials will post details regarding the emergency, protective action recommendations, and official announcements regarding cancellations, closures, etc. This page is available 24/7/365 with the latest information about any potential threats, and links to preparedness information.
