The Naval War College subscribes to a notification service that is used in the event of inclement weather delays or closures or other emergencies to send a voice or text message to phones and/or email accounts.
This is a voluntary service and students, staff, and faculty can sign up or dis-enroll by emailing the IRD Help Desk. While at work, you can sign up or dis-enroll through the intranet by going to "Emergency Notification" under "User Tools." The incoming call will register as 401-856-6400.
NWC Emergency and Inclement Weather Message Line
The Command Duty Officer will provide emergency or weather-related condition changes at the college with a voice mail message on 401-856-6400.
Note: If you have departed NWC and continue to receive alert notifications, email your removal request to email@example.com.
