The Office of Emergency Preparedness conducts a full-scale test of the Georgia Tech Emergency Notification System (GTENS), System to Create & Relay Emergency Action Messages (SCREAM), Georgia Tech Cable TV Alert System (GTCTAS), and outdoor siren warning system.

What you can do to prepare:

  • Program your mobile phone to recognize the number 404-385-3637. This test simulates a real scenario and will be the number that appears during an alert.
  • Provide feedback. Those who have opted in to the system but do not receive the test alert should visit www.gatech.edu/emergency/notification to report your status.
  • The GTENS voice message is 30 seconds. Please do not hang up early. GTENS needs that time to determine a live delivery or to your voice mail.

If you have not signed up, you can register through your Passport account. The outdoor Siren Warning System and the new RSS feature that displays a message on many of the TV monitors across campus during an emergency will also be tested.To sign up for Emergency Notification, visit passport.gatech.edu.
