If severe weather moves into the area, power goes out, an emergency occurs, or the college must unexpectedly close or delay its opening, it’s important to let people know quickly. That’s why John Tyler Community College uses the Tyler Alert system. Through Tyler Alert, the college can send urgent text messages and e-mail notifications.
Tyler Alert is a voluntary system. That means to receive these important notifications, you must sign up for them.
Getting started is easy. Go to www.jtcc.edu/tyleralert, and follow the directions to create an account. Once your account is set up, you will be given the option of deciding how you want to be notified. You can choose text, e-mail or both. You may also have your notifications sent to multiple devices and e-mails.
If you’ve already registered for Tyler Alert notifications, we encourage you to check your account periodically to make sure your numbers and e-mail addresses are up-to-date.
There’s no fee to be part of the system, however, your cell phone company may charge fees for having messages sent to your wireless device.
For more information about Tyler Alert, including answers to frequently asked questions, visit our Tyler Alert page.
Tyler Alert is one of the many notification tools used by the college to inform students, faculty, staff and the public about emergency situations and about schedule changes due to inclement weather. Tyler tests its emergency communication tools monthly.
