GTU-Alerts Emergency Notification System

GTU-ALERTS

The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008 requires that all institutions of higher education provide an emergency notification and warning system to alert their campus community in case of an emergency.

GTU has contracted with Omnilert, a leading provider of emergency alert systems, to provide this service for the GTU Community.

Our system, called GTU-ALERTS,is available to faculty, staff and students of all GTU Member Schools and Centers on an opt-in basis. In the event of an emergency announcements will be sent out via text message, email and voice recording, as deemed necessary.

In order to participate in this system, you will need to sign up at:

https://gtu.omnilert.net/subscriber.php

You may configure multiple email addresses and telephone numbers within your account if you wish to provide more than one way for the system to contact you in the case of an emergency.

Your account expires one year from the date of creation unless you renew it. Notices will be sent out by the system via email and text message reminding you of your account expiration and providing a link for you to use to renew. Twice yearly tests are sent to all subscribers. In the event that your account information is incorrect or your account has expired we will remove you from the system.

If you need assistance in signing up or configuring your GTU-Alerts account, please contact GTU IT staff at it@gtu.edu.
