Is it okay to use your cell phone during a campus emergency? Should you put a fire out with an extinguisher or just pull the alarm? When should you evacuate your building? When is “sheltering in place” the safest option?

UT’s new emergency management training will answer these and many other important questions you may have about how to react in certain serious situations and full-scale emergencies.
