Tips to Respond in 20 Types of Emergencies
From an active shooter, fire or bomb threat to concerning behavior or flooding, the UST Safety App provides tips for responding to 20 types of emergencies. See the “What to Do” section for instructions like a hurricane kit list. Review the information in advance of an emergency to be prepared.
Map of Campus and Building Addresses
If there’s an emergency in your building do you know what address to give emergency responders? Under “Maps/Building Addresses” see the addresses for campus buildings and click to see the location on Google Maps. There is also a link to the UST Interactive Map with photos and parking information.
RSS Feed with real-time UST Alerts
See the “UST Alerts” RSS feed for real-time emergency notifications. If an emergency notification had been deployed, you can find it here.
Stthom.edu/Ready site for resources and news
The UST Safety App has a link to the Ready site with news, events and resources for emergency preparedness. See the UST safety videos, download the pocket reference guide and take the quiz.
Resources with More Numbers to Call
In addition to important phone numbers for campus offices, the “Resources” section also includes information for the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the Red Cross, Weather.com and more.
UST Security Dialer to Call for an Escort or Report an Issue
If you don’t already have the number for Campus Security programmed into your phone, the UST Security Dialer button will call the Security staff directly. Call Security to request an escort to your car late at night or report a suspicious issue.
