Emergency Notification System

Safety & Security



The telephone is the primary means of emergency notification at TROY-Dothan Campus. This system is intended for immediate transmission of specific information regarding an emergency to all affected areas of the campus. During an emergency, campus phones must be restricted to Dothan Campus official traffic only. In the absence of phone services, runners for emergency notification will be used.

A NOAA Weather Alert Radio is monitored at all times by the switchboard operator or University Police. Upon receipt of an NOAA Weather Alert broadcast stipulating a possible emergency, the Dothan Campus Safety Director is contacted. When reporting an emergency, stay calm and carefully explain the problem and location. DO NOT HANG UP UNTIL TOLD TO DO SO.

The Public Safety Director and Public Safety Coordinator both maintain cellular telephones capable of receiving emergency notifications from the Emergency Management Agency, NWS, and Houston County Sheriff's Department.

On-Campus Assistance


Dial 111 when dialing on-campus for the Switchboard Operator. An operator is on duty from 7:30 A.M. until 5:30 P.M. Monday through Thursday and from 8:00 A.M. until 12:00 P.M. Friday. Emergencies at the Ft. Rucker location should be called in to the Assistant Directors' offices. They, in turn, will notify the TROY-Dothan Campus switchboard of any emergencies.

University Police Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Dial extension 225 for University Police or cellular telephone number 685-1185. Troy University Police are present when students are on campus.
