The TechAlert! emergency communications system is tested twice each year. Check your information and Get the Message!
A campus siren system test has been scheduled for 10 a.m. on March 10.
The siren system has been upgraded to include two new sirens that can be heard to an approximate radius of 4,400 feet. Sirens are used in the event of weather emergencies.
The sirens will sound for one minute.
In case of a weather emergency, the siren system is only one of several tools the university will use to alert the campus, including the university’s home page at www.ttu.edu.
If you have not already done so this semester, update cell phone, home phone or text message information at www.ttu.edu/emergency. The system is used to alert the university community of emergency situations or class cancellations or delays.
Texas Tech University has implemented TechAlert!, an Emergency Alert Notification System to communicate important alerts and emergency response information to students, faculty and staff.
To make sure you receive emergency alerts, update your contact information at www.ttu.edu/emergency
