As you travel around campus, have you wondered where the nearest tornado shelter area would be in the building in which you work or visit? How about where to go in case of a fire? Soon, this information will be located in many buildings on campus in the form of an emergency poster or a podium card. These new resources developed by the Office of Emergency Preparedness can provide quick instructions on what to do in a variety of emergencies such as severe weather, fire, a chemical spill, active shooters or medical emergencies. Each poster and podium card have building specific information in the lower right corner which will tell occupants where to shelter in case of severe weather or where the fire evacuation location is for that particular building. If you would like more information about these resources, or if you would like to have them installed in your building, contact Noelle Broadnax.
UGAAlert allows you to receive emergency messages on multiple devices. To register, you must have a valid UGA MyID.
