Temple to test Emergency Notification System

On Friday, Sept. 24, beginning at 4 p.m., Temple will conduct a test of TU Alert, the university’s primary emergency notification system. In the event of an emergency or disaster, TU Alert allows university officials to quickly communicate critical information via text messaging, voicemail and email to students, faculty and staff.

Why register for TU Alert?

It takes approximately four minutes to receive a TU Alert text message. Compare this to approximately 36 minutes for an e-mail and 42 minutes for a voice mail. Text messaging is the fastest way for you to receive critical information from class cancellations, campus closings, to incidents on campus.

If you have not yet signed up for TU Alert, please do so now.
