Emergency Communications

Immediate notifications of emergency conditions are essential to preserve the safety and well-being of the HSC community and critical to an effective response and recovery.

In the event of an emergency on an HSC campus, HSC Alert notifies faculty, staff, students and visitors of emergency information via HSC email, text message (if registered), RSS feeds and alerts beacons on certain campuses.

Governmental & Public Affairs is responsible for communication efforts that relate to the incident. As such, the department coordinates communication efforts with other HSC units and/or governmental agencies. Governmental & Public Affairs disseminates press releases, responds to media inquiries, and maintains/updates the main university website. The department works closely with emergency management and response officials to ensure that information being released to the campus community and media is accurate and timely.

During an emergency, additional information will be posted on the emergency communication webpage.
