Emergency Procedures on “Living at UMass” App

The Office of Emergency Management has partnered with Residential Life to include emergency procedures information on the popular app, “Living at UMass.” Here, students can view interactive procedures for potential situations such as an active threat, severe weather, and fire. Additionally, it is possible to report an incident and to update emergency contact information through the app. It is our hope that students will use these resources to increase their preparedness.
