Emergency Notification
At TCU, campus safety is a top priority. To that end, the university places a priority on informing faculty, staff and students about campus emergencies. In the event of an emergency or weather-related closures or delays, TCU will inform the campus through a variety of communication methods using a multi-tiered approach..
• TCU Alert (text and campus-wide email)
• TCU home page http://www.tcu.edu/
• Recorded information line (817-257-INFO or 4636; toll free at 1-866-321-7428)
If you are a member of the media working on deadline and have questions about TCU, please call the Office of Communication at 817-257-7810 or 817-454-0996 after hours.

Weather Information
Because spring and summer weather is volatile and can change at any time, students, faculty and staff should not wait for storm information from TCU ALERT. Rather, they should monitor local news reports via television, radio or the Internet and listen for sirens (if the situation calls for such action), which will be activated by the City of Fort Worth's Department of Emergency Preparedness.  For more information on campus shelters and other tips on how to protect yourself during a storm, visit TCU's Risk Management's Web site.
