TMCC uses Omnilert software to communicate with all College community members in case of an emergency requiring immediate notification, including weather alerts. These notices will not be used for regular College closures; they are reserved for emergencies only.
How Does it Work?
When an extreme emergency is identified by University Police Services, the emergency alert system notifies users via text message, voice message, and email as necessary, determined by the level of emergency on campus.
Who Receives the Messages?
Current students, full-time and part-time faculty and staff of TMCC are automatically added to the system to receive these alerts.
- Students: Your contact information from your student profile in MyTMCC will be used for these alert messages. Please update your email and phone number in MyTMCC to reflect any changes, in order to receive these emergency alerts.
- Faculty/Staff: If your contact information is current in Workday, you will get a text message, email or voice message during this time. If you do not receive alerts, your contact information may not be current. To ensure that you will receive timely warnings in the future, please follow these directions:

- In left bar, click on "Overview".
