Enroll for Emergency Notifications
During an emergency, USC Salkehatchie may send you a text message. Every incident is unique; therefore, different communication media will be activated based on their reach, effectiveness, and location. Text messages will only be used if a situation exists that poses an immediate risk to life and safety and requires persons to change their behavior (i.e. seek shelter, evacuate, etc.).
To sign up to receive texts:
- Go to my.sc.edu/emergency and login. You will be presented with a series of screens to update your information.
- Do not skip these messages.
- Complete all applicable fields and ensure your information is correct.
If you need help with this process, please contact the IT Help Desk.
We may send alerts to your university email account.
Text messages are only sent in the event of a true emergency. Receiving a text alert means a situation exists that poses an immediate risk to life and safety. The alert may also require you to change your behavior in ways such as seeking shelter, evacuating or other actions.
