Dear UNT community,
The safety of our campus community is of the utmost importance. University officials are well trained and well prepared to respond to emergencies to help keep you safe, and we have an established response and communication plan for all kinds of emergencies.
But in light of recent tragic events involving shooting incidents, it's important that we keep our campus community well informed of the steps they should take in an active shooter emergency to remain safe and out of harm's way.
We are providing tips based on guidance from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. These tips may help you protect yourself in the case of an active shooter on campus. We are providing cards that list these tips so that you can keep them handy. The cards will be distributed through campus mail and there will be posters in key areas around campus.
Please take the time to read through the tips and familiarize yourself with them. The more educated and aware all of us are about the actions we should take in these types of emergencies, the safer we will be as a campus community.
And please remember to keep your telephone and email information up to date for Eagle Alerts, UNT's mass emergency notification system.
Log in at my.unt.edu to ensure that your contact information is correct and get in the habit of updating the information as soon as it changes.
