RAVE Alert is the official emergency notification system Yakima Valley College uses to communicate with students and employees any time there is an emergency or safety issue for the campus community.
RAVE alerts are sent in the event of an emergency, a change in campus operations (delay or closure), or as a test of the RAVE system.
Rave Alert supports all U.S. mobile carriers.
You will receive a message from either 67283 or 226787. We strongly encourage you to save this number in your phone address book after you receive your first message. This way, in future emergencies, the message will be more recognizable as official communication from YVC.
RAVE service is free for students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community. RAVE does not charge subscribers to send or receive SMS messages. Standard or other messaging charges apply depending upon your wireless carrier plan and subscription details.
Yes. Students can opt-out of the text messages. Students will receive a text message announcing RAVE enrollment, and can then “opt-out” or manage their account on RAVE.
Once registered, you can opt-out of SMS messages at any time by texting STOP to 67283 or 226787. You may manage your preferences for your account by logging into RAVE.
