Building Evacuation

Hsc Stock 023

UNTHSC provides building-specific floor plans with pre-identified emergency exits and the Emergency Assembly Area map which indicates on-campus designated areas to assemble outdoors during an evacuation, and to help others to take shelter in nearby campus buildings.

Emergency Notifications

Sph Students

Emergency Notifications are an important component of any modern campus’s safety protocols. HSC has invested considerable resources in its “RED ALERT!” Emergency Notification process so our community has the benefit of a robust and updated system.

Weather Safety

Candice Stinnett Cancer Survivor

When severe weather is imminent, shelter in place by moving to a designated tornado shelter area immediately or Severe Weather Refuge Areas. Move quickly, but do not run. Assist disabled personnel in your area. Shelter in place until you hear an announcement from a member of the safety response team and/or a hand-held radio system station (if applicable) that it is safe to return to your area.
