It’s that time of year — colder weather, snow … and Tri-C Alert system testing! Our emergency messaging system calls and sends a text message to the emergency alert phone number you designate.
The College tested the Tri-C Alert emergency message system Nov. 14. Everyone signed up to receive alert messages should have received a phone call, a text message and an email.
If you didn’t receive a message, you must update your information before a real emergency occurs.
To update your phone information in my Tri-C space:
- Select Student.
- Go to My Info and click View My Address/Phone.
- Select Update My Phone Number and enter the phone number at which you’re most likely to be reached during an emergency situation. For most people, this will be a cellphone number.
Tri-C Alert text and voice messages will always come from 866-989-2578 (ALRT). Program this number into your phone as “TRI-C ALERT” so you’re prepared when the bad weather hits.
