The benefit of the Honeywell Instant Alert for Schools is that you can enter your account and edit it to include other forms of notification, such as your e-mail address, cell phone, text messaging, pager, or PDA. You can also add other contacts, such as a relative, a babysitter, etc. I encourage you to take this opportunity to expand the ways in which we can reach you in an emergency. You can accomplish this by following this set of instructions.

3. Complete the student information form. Click ‘Submit.’
4. Complete the corresponding screen. Click ‘Submit.’
5. After receiving the Confirmation message, click ‘Proceed’ to get started with Instant Alert.
