All faculty, staff and students should update cell phone, home phone or text message information at emergency.ttu.edu. 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 we have current phone, text message and e-mail contacts for all faculty, staff and students so our emergency communications system can send the latest information out as fast as possible."
In addition to the TechAlert! system, the university will use a number of different tools to ensure delivery of emergency messages. These tools include:
TechAlert! is a mass notification system that simultaneously sends email, text and voice messages to alert the university community of emergency situations or class cancellations or delays.
If you have not already done so this semester, update cell phone, home phone or text
message information at www.ttu.edu/emergency. Up to four phone numbers can be entered, with TTY/TDD for hearing impaired and text
Parents, if you wish to receive TechAlert notifications, ask your student to include your phone number in their registry.
