Emergency Notification


As part of Georgia Tech's ongoing effort to safeguard students, faculty and staff, the Institute has implemented a new emergency communications system. Known as the GT Emergency Notification System (GTENS), the system allows you to receive time-sensitive emergency messages in the form of e-mail, voice mail and text messages. Register for GTENS.

Siren Warning System

The Siren Warning System consists of 8 sirens that are strategically located throughout campus to provide alerts to students, faculty and staff who are outdoors. The Siren Warning System relays an alarm tone followed by an audio message explaining the emergency situation. View the Siren Warning test schedule.
