Wednesday, March 28th at 10:50 a.m., Texas Tech will be testing the TechAlert emergency communications system. This will consist of both electronic testing and outdoor sirens.

The system is used to inform students and staff of emergencies, weather issues, delays, and cancellations.

“The safety of our university community is our top priority,” said Ronald Phillips, university counsel and emergency management coordinator. “We test the TechAlert! system at least twice a year if it is not otherwise activated, so it is vital we have current phone, text message and email contacts for all faculty, staff and students so our emergency communications system can send the latest information out as fast as possible.”

Students and staff are encouraged to go to their Raiderlink page to verify and update their cell phone and email information.
