Emergency Management Video

A short video was created to explain to faculty, staff, and students what to do if there is an active shooter on campus, where to go in an evacuation, or what to do when you shelter-in-place. Emphasizing the diversity of the whole community, this preparedness video strives to make UTA a safer, stronger community during a disaster.
