Breaking News and Emergency Alerts
For emergency alerts, please follow the instructions below to receive alerts.
Simpson has implemented an emergency text alert system (Singlewire InformaCast), which can broadcast emergency alerts to office phones, email, and cell phones (text). By default, all employee and student Simpson email addresses are enrolled in the system to receive alerts. However, everyone may also elect to optionally add their personal cell phone number (text) and email address to receive alerts through the InformaCast website (see below for more info).

How to add your personal cell phone number (text) and/or email address to the Simpson emergency alert system:
1. Open a web browser and go to this web address: https://admin.icmobile.singlewire.com/selfservice/
2. Enter your Simpson email address (e.g. john.doe@students.simpsonu.edu).
3. You will be redirected to Simpson’s Single Sign-On (SSO) web page to sign in.
4. Enter your Simpson user account username (not email address) and password, then click the “Sign in” button.
5. The “Informacast" page will appear where you can view / enter your basic and device information.
6. Click the "+" button in the SMS section to add your cell phone number for text alerts.
7. Click the “Save” button to save your information.
 Note: There is also a mobile app available from your app stores where you can update your info and receive alerts. The app is also able to respond to special alerts that accept responses. In your cell phone app store, search for “InformaCast Mobile” by Singlewire Software, and then follow the directions to connect and login using your Simpson user account username and password.

If you need further assistance with signing up for mass text notifications, please contact the Help Desk via email or by calling 4940 or 530-226-4940.
