In the Event of a Crisis

Think personal safety first, assistance of others in need second, and defer to professionals who will be doing all they can to stabilize any crisis situation. 

If a campus-wide crisis occurs, campus authorities will immediately respond to the scene. Campus authorities may also contact local San Antonio emergency responders for assistance. 

  • Those on campus are to respond to any campus-wide notification as quickly as possible. 
  • The Crisis Management Team will set up an emergency operations center.
  • Decisions about continuation of class and regular office functions will be communicated as soon as possible through regular channels. 
  • A hotline may be set-up to allow family members and friends to call in to lean more details about those who may have been immediately involved or affected. Calls simply seeking general information should be avoided to free up resources to deal with immediate situations. 
  • Longer term plans and information will be released as an initial assessment is completed. 
  • Employees are asked to not talk to the media, but to defer all questions to the University Communications Office of Public Relations.
