About Emergency Management


The Office of Emergency Management is dedicated to preparing for, mitigating against, responding to and recovering from critical incidents and disasters that may impact our Temple community. By building a culture of preparedness within the university, we aim to facilitate adaptability and foster resilience to disruptions and stressors of any kind.

Our website serves as a resource for information on how to prepare for emergencies, get involved in preparedness activities, learn about what you can do to build personal resilience, and understand what actions to take during an emergency situation.

In order to become TUready, you must take part in your own readiness! Being well informed about potential emergencies is the first step in making sure that you know what to do and can take appropriate action to prioritize your safety. Learn more about personal preparedness, emergency procedures and the tools and resources you need to be TUready. Know what to do when emergencies happen on campus and how you can find critical information.
