What notification systems does Emergency Management oversee?


Emergency Management oversees the following systems: Outdoor Warning System (OWS) – Used to warn the public of an approaching hazard such as severe thunderstorms or tornadoes. In the event of an emergency, the OWS signals listeners to seek shelter in a safe place in a building. - UTD has 3 outdoor warning sirens located on campus. This system is tied to the City of Richardson’s Outdoor Warning System and can be activated by the City of Richardson remotely or manually by UTD. - The Warning System will be activated when:    

  • The National Weather Service issues a Richardson area Tornado Warning or Severe Thunderstorm Warning with destructive winds at or above 70 mph.  
  • Trained storm spotters have reported a tornado with the potential to affect the City of Richardson. o    Hail of 1.25 inches (Half Dollar) in diameter is imminent.
  • Deemed necessary by UTD or City of Richardson officials (i.e. in the event of any emergency when officials need to get citizens to move indoors for their safety) UTDAlert – Produces a text message, email and digital signage giving important instructions on what to do during a specific emergency situation.

Each student, faculty and staff member on campus are automatically enrolled when they become employed or a student. - To update your contact information, please go to http://www.utdallas.edu/textme/. - Tests for the UTDAlert and Outdoor Warning System are conducted the first Wednesday of every month at noon. Indoor Warning System (IWS) – This system enables UTD emergency services to have the capability to communicate with most buildings or each building individually during an incident. Fire alarm pulls are used also used in warning occupants of an emergency within the building. Indoor Warning System tests are conducted quarterly.
