The UTSA Office of Emergency Management recently teamed up with OIT Application/Development Services and University Communications & Marketing to develop a new feature to the UTSA app: Emergency Information.
The emergency information module on the app now lets you direct dial to UTSA Police emergency (458-4911) and non-emergency (458-4242) if you are in need of immediate assistance or require security services, such as a safety escort to your vehicle at night or to report a crime. You can also call the weather/notification hotline, 458-SNOW (7669), directly from the app to check the university status during inclement weather.
Another great feature of the module connects you to the UTSA Campus Alerts website (www.alerts.utsa.edu), which is a clearinghouse for emergency preparedness tips and information regarding campus operations. The module also provides a direct pathway to the online version of the emergency response guide, thereby providing you with university emergency procedures right at your fingertips, wherever and whenever you need them!
The UTSA app is available for both Apple and Android platforms. To download: (a) visit the app store from your phone, (b) click on install, then (c) verify the app downloaded to your home screen. If you already have the UTSA app on your phone, don’t forget to run a quick update from the app store. Once downloaded, take time to familiarize yourself with the features. You can also customize your view of the UTSA app by clicking on settings then layout, which allows you to change the app layout between grid, list, or sidebar. Don’t delay, download the app today!
