The Tejano Alert Emergency Notification System is being transitioned to a new service provider. This change is expected to be complete by mid-February, 2013. In the interim, please look to the EPCC Web Home Page and local radio and television channels for weather-related announcements.
For the implementation of the new system and at the beginning of each academic year, EPCC will follow the new Texas statute which changed the Education Code to require an emergency alert system at each institution of higher education. In accordance with the legislation, our new system will be an “opt-out” system where every registered student, faculty and staff member of the EPCC community will be automatically subscribed at the beginning of the academic year. Each subscribed person will be able to register or correct their notification preferences or, with a signed request, opt out of the system altogether. Much more detailed information will be provided as we approach official implementation.
