How to Receive Emergency Information about FTCC


Text & Email Alerts

FTCC emergency information (College opening delays, closings, and other safety-related info) is available to individuals via FayText, a spam-free text and email service provided by FTCC, free of charge.  A text alert is often a convenient, fast, effective way to receive important emergency information.  Having a cell phone charger inside your personal automobile for charging your cell phone is a good backup plan. During electrical outages this allows you to continue to receive important text alerts and access other communications via your cellular or mobile device.  Information about Fay Text is available on FTCC’s home page underneath “Resources” and labeled as “Text Alerts.”      


FTCC Email

FTCC’s email communication system provides emergency information along with updates.

Student Services will be checking email throughout the inclement weather. Students may contact these departments for assistance:
