Integrating safety

Be prepared

This fourth week of SafeU Month is focused on physical and environmental safety. The division of Emergency Management in the Department of Public Safety offers a variety of trainings and resources that help staff, students and faculty feel prepared should an emergency occur on campus.

Alerting U

The U needs to communicate as quickly as possible for your personal safety. Opting out of texts means you might not get critical safety information.

Emergency coordination

A new center in the College of Law will serve as central command during crisis situations to assist police and fire crews.

Active shooter training

In light of recent active shooter situations, the Department of Public Safety would like to remind you of training opportunities.
