(Aug. 17, 2010)--UTSA has launched the new Campus Alerts website. The site was developed to keep students, faculty, staff and the general public informed on the status of the university during emergency situations.
Managed by the UTSA Office of Business Continuity and Emergency Management and the Office of Communications, the site is a single source for information on UTSA closures prompted by inclement weather, health and other emergencies, and construction and maintenance work.
The goal of the one-stop site is to help reduce confusion by eliminating duplicate messages on various UTSA websites. Linked from the UTSA home page, the website will offer a unified official voice for UTSA with information from campus organizations, departments and outside partners. Particularly important during emergencies, the site can be updated quickly and easily with clear, concise details.
The website also is accessible from a link at the footer of all UTSA Web pages, replacing the "Emergency Preparedness" link. On the main page of the new site, there is a space for major alerts with tabs across the top linking to background information including health, safety, weather, the UTSA Emergency Response Guide, preparedness and supporting offices. In the right sidebar, there are listings to aid in reporting an incident, important contacts, current weather and external resources.
Postings on the Campus Alerts site will be augmented as necessary with e-mails to students, faculty and staff, as in the past, along with information on the 210-458-SNOW emergency hotline, news from area broadcast media and, as necessary, the Reverse 911 emergency notification system.
The website was developed as part of the UTSA Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan through the university-wide UTSA Emergency Response Team.
