Frequently Asked Questions               back to top

Who can get Lanier Technical College Alerts?
The Lanier Technical College Alerts service is designed for students, faculty and staff who will be affected directly by an emergency on the University Grounds and/or the proximate areas.

Why should I get Lanier Technical College Alerts?

  • Text messaging is more reliable in emergency situations when communication systems reach high capacity. Text messages will get through when phone calls won't.
  • You will receive alerts anywhere, even when you do not have access to a computer.
Will my cell phone number be kept confidential?
Yes. Lanier Technical College Alerts service cell phone numbers are not shared or sold to any other systems or services.

How many Lanier Technical College Alerts text messages will I receive?
The exact number of Lanier Technical College Alerts messages is difficult to predict, but there should be very few. There will be occasional tests of the system, but the aim is to alert you only to emergency situations in which there is an imminent threat to public safety. You will receive messages within seconds of their transmission. If your cell phone is turned off when a text message is sent, you will receive it after you turn your cell phone on, but only if you do so within seven days from the original transmission.

What do I need to get Lanier Technical College Alerts and how much does it cost?
All you need is a cell phone with text messaging capabilities. There is no charge to users for signing up. Individual cell phone plans will apply normal charges for the text message.

Note: All landlines, most Tracfones and some pay-as-you-go phones will not register on the Lanier Technical College Alerts system. This is a limitation of the phone providers.

What if I change my cell phone service provider?
When you change cell/mobile phone providers but keep your existing mobile number it is considered "ported." Depending on the mobile phone provider, it may take up to 30 days for the Lanier Technical College Alerts system to be updated. During the "ported" time period, you may not receive alerts because the alerts are sent to the old mobile provider, which may not forward them. You will find details on how to solve this problem and immediately register when you log on to get registration information.

What will the Lanier Technical College Alerts tell me?
A short text message will state the type of threat and indicate suggested action. For instance, in the case of a chemical spill: “CHEMICAL SPILL ON GROUNDS. AVOID (LOCATION). DETAILS AT WWW.LANIERTECH.EDU.” Because the messages must be brief, you will always be directed to go to the University's Web site (www.laniertech.edu) where details will be available.

An important reminder: the Lanier Technical College Web site is the primary and most complete resource for current emergency information. The Lanier Technical College Alerts text messaging service is just one of the methods the University will use to communicate emergency information. If appropriate, global e-mails, the telephone switchboard, flyers, local media and other communication tools will also be used.
