Emergency preparedness is a group effort that involves all members of the WashU community. To do your part:

We can’t warn you if we can’t reach you. Make sure you are able to receive WashUAlerts by downloading the NEW WashU Safe App (Android or iOS and the WUSTL app (Android and iOS).

In an emergency, information can save lives. Educate yourself on emergency procedures by reviewing the Be Prepared section of this website!
