GPTC - Emergency Alert System

Georgia Piedmont Technical College's Emergency Alert System (EAS) is used to communicate vital information to students and employees as quickly as possible. Vital information is classified as campus closings, severe weather, evacuation routes, and security incidents. The information can be delivered via text message (SMS) to your mobile phone or e-mail. GPTC strongly suggests that you sign up for the text message notifications as it is the quickest notification method. The messages are short and meant only as an initial notification. Please check your college email and local media source in case of an emergency for more detailed information as it becomes available.

This is an "OPT-IN" service: You must create your own account and enter your contact information in order to receive notifications. GPTC urges you to keep your information updated to ensure delivery of emergency messages.To receive the text message you must have a phone that is capable of receiving text messages.

There is no charge to subscribe to the emergency alert system, but your cell phone provider may charge a fee for delivery of text messages based on your calling plan. The system is optional and will only be used to notify you of vital information. You will not be spammed or receive any routine reminders. Your information will not be shared with third party vendors. Throughout the year GPTC will send out a few test messages.
