<< Back to Emergency Preparedness

The old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure is certainly appropriate here. Students should take the opportunity to take the following steps to be prepared in the event of an emergency:

✔ Sign up for UArts Alerts on the UArts Portal

✔ Sign up for Alert Philadelphia so that you are aware of important developments in the city

✔ Download the myUArts App to your mobile device(s) and/or tablet; the App can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play, and has a portal for emergency management

✔ Familiarize yourself with the exits and stairways in the building(s) you have classes or reside in case you need to make a quick exit

✔ Develop an evacuation plan with your friends and family so that if the University closes, you have a place to go and a way to get there

✔ Save important numbers in your phone such as Public Safety's emergency line: (215-717-6666)
