The UT Health Science Center San Antonio will conduct a test of the HSC Alert system on Friday, Feb. 17.
HSC Alert is the text and e-mail notification system for emergencies and campus closures at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio.
Faculty, staff and students can designate up to two cell phones with text-messaging service and one personal e-mail address to receive HSC Alert messages.
Medical residents can receive e-mail messages about campus emergencies or closures, but will not receive text messages.
“If you have a uthscsa.edu e-mail address, you will receive HSC Alert messages automatically through that e-mail account, but if you are not at your computer or don’t have that e-mail account open, you may miss an important message,” said Mary DeLay, chief of staff and communications at the Health Science Center. “That is why we are urging you to take the time now to sign up or update your contact information for your cell phones and an additional e-mail address to increase your chances of being notified in a direct, timely manner should we have an emergency on campus.” How to sign up
