Arkansas Tech University – Ozark Campus has activated an emergency early warning text messaging system as an additional means of communicating with the campus community during emergency situations on the Ozark Campus. While no campus, city, or other entity can ever be totally prepared for every eventuality that might befall its students, the local authorities and its campus partners feel that a continued review of these dynamic response plans will serve us well. We will continue as we always have to exercise and hone these plans. We will continue to examine the current methods of notification as well as explore newer technologies that might enhance our abilities to get emergency messages out to more people quickly, whether for a tornado warning, storm alert, terrorist threat, or to warn of any person threatening our campus environs.
Students who wish to register for the service send the word “TECHOC” to the number 50618. Leave the subject line blank. After the message is sent, the sender will receive a confirmation message.
