Emergency Notifications

Learn what to do in case of emergency.

To help prevent crimes or other serious incidents, the security department, in conjunction with members of the crisis management team, issues campus safety alerts in a timely manner to notify community members about certain crimes in and around our community. Members who know of a crime or other serious incident should report that incident as soon as possible to the department of security so that a campus safety alert can be issued, if warranted.

Connect enables Indiana Tech to share vital campus safety information quickly and accurately through a variety of media. Depending on the situation, alerts and information may be sent through:

  • Text messages
  • Voice messages
  • Email
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Public address announcements

You do not need to sign up for this service; all current students, faculty, and staff are automatically included. However, we must have correct contact information on file to ensure that we can notify you of campus closings or emergency situations.

Timely Warnings

If Safety & Security becomes aware of criminal incidents that are determined to constitute a serious or continuing threat to the campus community, a “Timely Warning” will be issued. This is an alert that is timely and will aid in the prevention of similar crimes, intended to enable people to protect themselves, and should be issued as soon as pertinent information is available. Determination of what to alert and what information is contained in the alert is on a case-by-case basis considering the nature of the crime, continuing danger to the community, and possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts. Most commonly, timely warnings will include pertinent information about the crime that triggered the warning, promotes safety, and aids in the prevention of similar crimes. Personally identifiable information may only be transmitted in a timely warning if it meets the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
