Leopard Alert is an emergency notification system that allows Temple College to quickly communicate health and safety-related emergency information through text message or email.
What is Leopard Alert?
Leopard Alert is an emergency notification service that gives Temple College the ability to communicate health and safety emergency information quickly by e-mail and/or text message. By enrolling in Leopard Alert, Temple College can quickly pass on safety-related information, regardless of your location.
Leopard Alert is powered by e2Campus—a national mass notification provider. Contact information you provide to the Leopard Alert service will be used only for delivering health and safety emergency information. E2Campus has strict “Zero Spam” and usage policies for the information used by and for the Leopard Alert service.
In addition to having alerts sent to your cell phone, pager and e-mail, Leopard Alert notifications can also be received and published to a number of personalized home pages such as Google, AOL and Yahoo, or any RSS reader.
Leopard Alert System Procedures
When an emergency occurs, the Leopard Alert system can send email, text messages and voice messages to students and employees as little as 90 seconds.
Leopard Alert will be sent in emergencies that require unscheduled closure or evacuation of a campus or the district. This includes but is not limited to weather.

No. e2Campus uses industry standard SMS text messaging protocol to send messages to your phone. Your mobile phone plan will need to accept text messages to work properly.
Log in to the Leopard Alert site and check your phone number and provider. If your number or provider is incorrect, then click on “Change Status” to update and resend a validation code. If you still do not receive verification, you’ll want to check with your provider regarding what your service or plan includes.
The simplest way is to have a colleague or friend try to send you a text message, and then, you send them a return text message. If either does not work, you’ll want to check with your provider about what your plan or service includes. If you can send and receive messages, then visit the e2Campus cell phone test page to ensure you have chosen the right cellular phone carrier/provider.
If you didn’t get the campuswide test message, follow these procedures:
- Have a colleague or friend send you a text message from their cell phone. If this doesn’t work, skip to step 3.
- If you are able to receive a message, then visit the e2Campus cell phone test page to test your service with them. If you receive their test message then the service is enabled and you’ll want to log in to Leopard Alert to verify your account information. If not, e2Campus can be reached directly at 800-936-3525, option 0.
- If you were not able to receive a text message from a colleague or friend, then you’ll need to contact your cellular service provider for assistance with your service, plan or mobile device.
- If after completing these steps you are not able to receive a test call, contact Temple College ITS Help Desk by phone at 254-298-8450, by e-mail at email@example.com or if on campus visit Watson Technical Center (WTC) Room 533 or Room 571.
