Get Prepared

Prepare before an emergency ever arises to best protect yourself and others. 
  • Register or update your contact information in the YU Alert emergency notification system. 
  • Know your surroundings: identify emergency exits in your building and familiarize yourself with emergency evacuation procedures.  
  • Know your responsibilities: if you are responsible for communicating with staff, faculty or students in your department/area, understand how to do so quickly and prepare in advance key emergency response information. Administrative and academic department supervisors should pre-determine outside meeting spaces for your faculty and staff in the case of a fire/emergency evacuation of  your building. 
  • Know the University’s emergency contact numbers: Wilf Campus: 212.960.5200; Israel Henry Beren Campus: 212.340.7796; Brookdale Center Campus (Cardozo Law): 212.790.0303; Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus (Einstein):  718.430.2019   
  • If you see something suspicious, report it immediately to Campus Security or call 911.
