If an emergency occurs on campus, how will you know?

The UTC-ALERT system is designed to inform the UTC community in the event of an emergency.

  • UTC-ALERT messages contain critical information.
  • Depending on the situation, you may need to follow the instructions in the UTC-ALERT message and await further communication.
  • There is no cost to sign up for UTC-ALERT, and it will only be used to share emergency information.

Emergency Notification Methods

UTC Email 

UTC will send an email containing information or instructions during an emergency. Emails will be sent via UTC-SAFE-AND-SECURE, UTC-URGENT and UTC-INFO.

Text Messaging

UTC sends out UTC-ALERT messages straight to your mobile phone.

UTC Website and Social Media

While the UTC website and social media are not the primary alerting methods, UTC will display critical information on its website and social media, including Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Classroom and Building Alerts

Alert Beacons are wall-mounted devices in select locations that sound an alarm and show a text message to notify the campus when an emergency has occurred.

LED Scrolling Signs are also mounted in select locations and display large type messages.

Desktop Alerting

Computers on campus have been loaded with a desktop alerting function, which is a full-screen pop-up alert. When an emergency notification is sent this way, the message self-opens over the entire computer screen and stays up until the user acknowledges the alert.

Privacy Information

UTC-ALERT does not distribute advertising or other promotional content.

UTC-ALERT subscribers pay no fees for the service, other than any individual fees associated with text messaging services.
