UTC has implemented a new text messaging system to notify students, faculty, and staff in the event of a campus emergency. UTC ALERT can be set up to send both a text message and email message to designated devices. UTC ALERT messages will contain immediate instructions in the event of an emergency.
Enrollment in the system is free and easy to complete. Visit UTC ALERT and sign up now.
“We have to do everything we can to prepare the campus to address any type of emergency. Almost all students, faculty, and staff carry cell phones, so this text messaging system is an additional communication resource that we hope will deliver information quickly,” said Chuck Cantrell, assistant vice chancellor.
A test of the system is scheduled for April 2. All students, faculty, and staff members who have enrolled in the system by that time should receive a test text message.
