A test of the HSC Alert system will be held on Friday, Oct. 19.
HSC Alert is the UT Health Science Center’s text and e-mail notification system for campus emergencies and closures.
“We have been fortunate that our campus has remained safe; however, over the past several years we have had to close the campus twice due to inclement weather and once because of a broken water pipe,” said Mary DeLay, M.B.A., vice president for communications and chief of staff. “We would like to be able to reach you immediately should there be a campus closure or emergency.”
If you have not yet signed up for HSC Alert, please take a moment to do so now to ensure that you are included in the test of the HSC Alert system on Friday.
Faculty, staff and students can enroll two text-enabled cell phones and one alternate e-mail address. HSC Alert messages are automatically sent to uthscsa.edu e-mail addresses.
Even if you have already enrolled, please check to make sure the cell phone numbers and alternate e-mail address you have entered are up to date.
Medical residents can receive e-mail alerts, but will not receive text messages. Medical residents should contact their academic coordinator to be added to the list to receive e-mail notification. Please follow these instructions
