Texas Tech will test its TechAlert! emergency communications system and outdoor sirens at 10:50 a.m. on Wednesday, March 20th.

All faculty, staff, and students should update cell phone, home phone, or text message information at emergency.ttu.edu.

Ronald Phillips, chief compliance and security officer, says: "The safety of our university community is our top priority. 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 quickly as possible."

This information was received through a Texas Tech news release.
