Victoria College schedules emergency alert system test
Victoria College will conduct a test of its emergency alert system Thursday afternoon.
The test will determine if the alert system reaches users via each of the contact methods they have shared with the college.
Students, faculty and staff can receive alerts on their cell and home phones, as well as their preferred email addresses.
Community members can also sign up to receive alerts by contacting the VC Call Center at 361-573-3291 and supplying their names and contact information. This information will be added into the emergency alert system for future alerts. After the test alert is sent, users who did not receive the alert via one of their preferred contact methods are encouraged to contact the VC Call Center so potential issues can be identified.
This test is conducted at the beginning of each semester. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to ensure their contact information is up-to-date in the Pirate Portal, VC's internal website, prior to Thursday's test alert.
