UTC-ALERT SYSTEM TEST:
The University will be testing the UTC-ALERT system on Wednesday, August 26th at 11:55 AM
What is the UTC-ALERT system?
This “multipath” system is used to provide information during emergencies and events which significantly impact campus operations.
How we send information to you depends on the urgency of the situation. The most urgent information is sent via text messages which are used in only four conditions:
How can I get UTC-ALERT text messages?
Our text messages system is “opt in”. You have to tell us you want to receive the messages. If you would like to get the UTC-ALERT text messages you can sign up at https://www.getrave.com/login/utc . You will need your UTC-ID to sign up. While the system is free you should remember that your cell phone carrier will charge any fees they normally charge for you to receive text messages. If you want to keep your family posted as well you can have the message sent to two additional phone numbers.
If your first language is not English you can also instruct the system to send you the messages in your own language.

Incident Number 15-003743
Location – South Campus Housing
This morning, the 28th of June, the UTC Police Department were informed of a Burglary from a residence hall on South campus, which occurred between Saturday evening at 9:00pm and Sunday morning at 5:00am. The unoccupied dwelling was entered through an unsecured exterior door on the second floor. Once inside, electronics were taken from the living room (Common area) in the apartment.
It’s hard to know what to do in a crisis, but these simple tips can help you work toward a fast and safe resolution. Staying calm, being smart and putting your safety first are the keys to protecting yourself from being victimized.
Report any suspicious persons or activities (including solicitors) in or near your residence hall to your residence hall staff or the University Police Department at (423) 425-4357. Secure your valuables and engrave expensive items with identifying information. Above all, lock and secure all doors including windows when you are away from the residence.
Another simple step would be to dedicate a digital camera card to photographing the items in your home along with close-ups of every serial number. Usually along with the serial number is a model number as well. Then store the card in an safe place in your home or at your workplace. Should you ever need the serial numbers they are accessible and you are able to give a complete record to police. Oftentimes the serial number or owner applied number is the only thing that helps get your things back.
A recommendation to increase the chances of recovering any stolen property: Etch your driver’s license into your valuable items when it is practical. Your DL number is not going to be a readily identifiable piece of personal information to a crook and there is much less risk using your DL number as opposed to something like your social. Furthermore, using your DL number makes it very easy for Law Enforcement Officials to identify the property if recovered.
If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact the UTC Police Department at (423) 425-4357.
