Texas Tech to Test TechAlert! and On-Campus Sirens Next Week
A few times a year, Texas Tech University conducts tests of their TechAlert! emergency notification system and the on-campus outdoor sirens. The most recent test took place last December.
The first test in 2021, for both systems, is scheduled for Tuesday, March 23 at 10:50 a.m.
Texas Tech University notes, "Texas Tech will test its TechAlert! emergency communications system used to alert the university community of emergency situations, class cancellations and delays. This test also will include audible outdoor sirens used to alert the university community of severe weather."
In advance of Tuesday, March 23, Texas Tech students, staff, and faculty, can update their contact information in the TechAlert! system by going online to: emergency.ttu.edu
The TechAlert! system sends notifications in a variety of ways including phone calls, text messages and e-mails.
Texas Tech University's on-campus outdoor sirens are mainly used during severe weather events. They are located in a variety of places on-campus, including: Memorial Circle, the Engineering Key and most residence halls.
