Information about college delays, closings, and emergencies is available in a variety of ways:
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 disenroll by emailing the IRD Help Desk. While at work, you can sign up or disenroll through the intranet by going to "Emergency Notification" under "User Tools." The incoming call will register as 401-841-2000.
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 this line.
Note: If you have departed NWC and continue to receive alert notifications, email your removal request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
RADIO AND TELEVISION
Announcements are also made through the Rhode Island Broadcasters Association (RIBA) Business and School Cancellation System. Participating stations announce or publish the most up-to-date listing of weather-related impacts throughout the state. Click HERE to go directly to the RIBA Cancellation System's latest update.
