2012 Emergency Response Campaign

Emergency Response Readiness

We have had a beneficial month-long look at safety and we are ending this month with emergency preparedness.  We have completed fire drills during fire safety week, but what would you do if a fire or tornado was threatening this university?   Below are some helpful hints on how to handle this situation:

  1. Know the evacuation plan for the university
  2. Take pictures of your property and register property with CTXPD
  3. Have the CTXPD phone numbers memorized (512) 313-3311 or (512) 313-4042
  4. Stay Calm

We all need to work together to ensure that when an emergency happens on campus everyone makes it out safely.  What do you do if you see an armed subject on campus?

Immediately contact CTXPD at (512) 313-3311.

  1. If the armed subject is outside the building, immediately call CTXPD at (512) 313-3311, then:
  • If it is safe to do so:
    •  Turn off the lights, close and lock all windows and doors. 
    •  Attempt to get everyone low on the floor and out of sight.
    •  Move to a safe area of the building and remain there until an “all clear” signal is given by an authorized, known voice.  Unfamiliar voices could be suspects trying to lure you into danger. 
  1. If an armed subject is inside the building, call CTXPD at (512) 313-3311, then:
  • Give police your name, location and any suspect information/description. 
  • If it is safe to do so:
    •  Flee the area and avoid the danger.
    •  If you determine it is unsafe to leave the building, lock all doors and windows.
    •  Get down on the floor or under a desk and remain silent.
    •  Attempt to locate a secure area, and get everyone low on the floor and out of sight. 
    •  Wait for an “all clear” signal from an authorized, known voice.


What do you do if a disruptive individual comes into your classroom or office?

  1. Steps to take when dealing with a disruptive individual:
    1. Contact the Concordia Police Department at (512) 313-3311.
    2. Give your name, location and a brief explanation of the situation.
    3. If possible, give police the name and/or description of the individual involved.
