Emergency Alert System

Trident Technical College’s Emergency Alert System (EAS) is used to communicate vital information to academic credit students and employees as quickly as possible before, during and after a campus emergency.

The Emergency Alert System (EAS) includes the following notification components:

  • EAS Mobile: Text and/or voice messages sent to cell/home phones and mobile devices. (Students/employees must register to receive messages. See directions below.)
  • EAS Email: Email alerts sent to email accounts. (Students/employees must register to have emails sent to their personal email accounts. See directions below. TTC email addresses are automatically registered.)
  • EAS Campus: Audible and/or text alerts sent to campus telephones and computer screens located in classrooms, hallways and offices.
  • EAS Web: Alerts posted on TTC’s website, TTC's Facebook page, TTC's Twitter account and on TTC’s portal page.
  • EAS InfoLine: Recorded message alerts accessed by calling 843-574-6262, ext. 9091 (students) or 9092 (employees). A toll-free InfoLine, 877-869-7736, is activated when conditions warrant.
  • EAS Media: Alerts sent to local media outlets (radio, television, newspaper).

Important Emergency Alert Registration Information

You must register with the TTC Emergency Alert System to receive timely notification of campus emergencies. The quickest notification method is a text message, so you are strongly encouraged to provide a number for a text (SMS) capable device. You can update your contact information and change notification methods at any time.
