Gateway receives grant to expand emergency alert system

District Mutual Insurance awarded Gateway Technical College $27,000 as part of a risk management project award to expand the college’s current notification system within its facilities throughout the district.

The municipal mutual insurance company, founded by the Wisconsin Technical College System, at its July 24 quarterly meeting awarded $440,000 in risk management project awards to colleges throughout the system.

Gateway’s award includes paying for and installing horns and LED message boards districtwide which would allow a greater number of students, staff and community visitors to see and hear the college’s emergency alarms.

These elements would be installed into the present emergency Alertus System and expand the notification environment currently available within Gateway facilities.

DMI was established to provide a range of commercial insurance coverages to meet the unique needs of the 16 Wisconsin technical college districts. DMI provides a menu of insurance and risk management services and solutions to address the multiple exposures created by the delivery of vocational, technical and adult education.
