STAT!Alert Emergency Notifications Update: Text Alerts

Texas Tech University Health Science Center (TTUHSC) uses STAT!Alert Emergency Notifications to communicate alerts and emergency response information to faculty, staff and students in the event of a campus or regional emergency as defined by TTUHSC officials.

Text Alerts Provide the Fastest Delivery

STAT!Alert messages can be sent through phone calls, voice mail, text messages, email, Facebook, Twitter and RSS feeds to display on digital signage monitors across campus. Of these methods to receive communications, TTUHSC’s emergency management team has found when communicating to a large audience that text messaging is the fastest form of delivery, which is important in an emergency situation.

Student and employee records will automatically add the listed mobile numbers into the STAT!Alert database, but participation is needed in order to increase the database of mobile numbers, reaching a maximum number of people.

Free, Quick and Confidential

This effort will require the participation of all students, faculty and staff to ensure their record with the university is accurate. To verify or update your contact information, individuals can login to the university’s emergency alert page. The process takes only minutes to complete.

The information entered into the Emergency Notification Database will not be used for any other
purpose than STAT!Alert messaging.

Attention to this important component of emergency management ensures the safest possible TTUHSC community.
