There are a number of important steps that you can take to be TUready:
Update your contact information in TUportal to be sure that you receive TUalerts. If you do not live in a residence hall be sure to update your local address.
Know your vocabulary:
Shelter-in-Place means to stay inside, do not evacuate and close all windows and doors until notified that the area has been deemed safe again.
Evacuation means to exit the location that you are in, quickly and calmly. Do not use the elevators. Look for anyone who may need assistance to safely exit the building. Go to the designated Rally Point to check in.
All Clear is the message that will be sent once emergency personnel have investigated the scene and determined that there is no known continuing threat to the community.
Add TUalert as a contact in your cell phone. This information allows you to identify when you are receiving a TUalert. These numbers do not receive calls.
- Contact Name: TUalert
- Mobile Number: 215-777-7777
- Home Number: 24639
Familiarize yourself with the emergency Blue Phone locations, TUr Door and OWLoop transportation services, and program Temple Police into your phone (215) 204-1234.
If you live off-campus it is critical that you learn about the resources available to you. The Office of Off-Campus Living has materials for you to consider when selecting a place to live. You must also do your research to know the local police and agencies that serve the neighborhood where you live.
