Texas Tech University will test its TechAlert! emergency communications system at 10:50 a.m. on Thursday (Sept. 15).
The system is used to alert the university community of emergency situations, class cancellations or delays.
“The safety of our university community is our top priority,” said Ronald Phillips, university counsel and emergency management coordinator. “We test the TechAlert! system at least twice a year if it is not otherwise activated so it is vital that we have current phone, text message and e-mail contacts for all faculty, staff and students so emergency communications system can get the latest information out as fast as possible.”
To ensure receipt of these important messages, update contact info at www.ttu.edu/emergency.
In the event of an emergency or campus closure, university officials use multiple communication platforms in addition to the TechAlert! system, including the university homepage, the online emergency communications center, Texas Tech Today and social media.
