At TCU, campus safety is a top priority. To that end, the university places a priority on informing faculty, staff and students about campus emergencies. In the event of an emergency or weather-related closures or delays, TCU will inform the campus through the following sources:
The TCU ALERT service sends emergency text messages to campus members via cell phones, campuswide e-mails and messages to home phones. TCU also will utilize the media to inform the community about campus closures or delays.

Confirming a TCU ALERT message: When confirmation of a TCU ALERT message is requested, the message must be confirmed by the recipient. If not confirmed, the service will continue to send the message until confirmation of receipt is received.
Weather information: Because weather is volatile and can change at any time, students, faculty and staff should not wait for storm information from TCU ALERT. Rather, they should monitor local news reports via television, radio or the Internet and listen for sirens (if the situation calls for such action), which will be activated by the City of Fort Worth's Department of Emergency Preparedness.
