Information about receiving emergency alert notifications from TechAlert through various methods


Explanation

TechAlert notifications will automatically be sent to all TTUS and TTU students, faculty, and staff via TechMail. In addition to these email notifications, you can choose to be notified by voice call, text message, and TTY/TDD services.

TechAlert uses information in TTU's Emergency Notification Database to send the alerts. The database is preloaded with the primary phone number listed for you in the university's Banner system. This number may not be the most approriate for an emergency, so it is strongly recommended that all students, faculty, and staff update their information on a regular basis.

Emergency alert notifications will be sent to each department's main telephone number automatically. Students, faculty, and staff should not specify campus office phone numbers in their individual contact information.

Students, faculty, and staff will receive emergency notifications applicable to their primary location. You may opt to receive emergency notifications relevant to an additional location by selecting an alternate location.

Update your details online to designate any one or more method(s) for alerts and ensure your details are accurate.
