The exercise is sponsored by the Texas Governor’s Division of Emergency Management and will be presented by the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) and the National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center (NERRTC).

As a reminder, all new and returning faculty, staff and students should take a few minutes to confirm their information in the TechAlert! Emergency Alert Notification System. Access to TechAlert! can always be found at www.emergency.ttu.edu. Up to four phone numbers can be listed. One of the numbers can be designated as text-enabled. Additionally, one of the phone numbers can be selected for TTY/TDD messaging for the hearing impaired. The information entered into this system is secure and will be used only in emergency situations. It will not be made available to any other service so you will not receive any spam or advertising. The TechAlert! system is tested twice a year unless it has otherwise been activated. In case of an emergency, TechAlert! is only one of several tools the university will use to communicate with the Texas Tech community in the event of an emergency, including the university’s home page at www.ttu.edu, the online Emergency Communications Center at www.emergency.ttu.edu, and our social media outlets on Facebook and Twitter.
