UTMB Alerts Emergency Notification System

Emergency Notification System

UTMB Alerts is UTMB’s Emergency Notification System. In a campus emergency, UTMB will use several information delivery methods because, at any given time, one form of communications might be better to reach you than another. UTMB delivers emergency notifications using some or all of the following channels:

  • UTMB Alerts text and phone messages
  • The UTMB Alert Site webpage (www.utmb.edu/alert)
  • The iUTMB homepage (www.utmb.edu/iutmb)
  • Global broadcast e-mails to all UTMB email accounts
  • UTMB Institutional Facebook and Twitter postings

Go Mobile with UTMB Alerts

UTMB employees and students are automatically enrolled in the UTMB Alerts notification system, using basic directory information such as UTMB email and phone number.

We strongly recommend entering your mobile contact information (text, cell phone, etc.) into your UTMB Alerts contact details, via the enrollment portal. This will ensure you get emergency messages quickly on a device you have with you (nearly) always.
