Assistance for Students in Case of an Emergency

Texas A&M University and the Division of Student Affairs have developed a Critical Incident Response Team  (CIRT), consisting of university administrators and staff, to best respond to the critical incidents involving students.

CIRT is available 24/7, 365 days a year to help students on and off campus during a critical incident.
You can activate the CIRT team by calling the University Police Department at 979.845.2345
For more information about CIRT, go to Critical Incident Response Team.

Contacting Your Student in an Emergency

Often a family emergency may require you to immediately reach your student. If that emergency occurs at a time during which your student is in a class it may be difficult for you to contact her/him via telephone, and you may need a message delivered. The Student Assistance Services Office can assist families in contacting their student during regular office hours by calling 979.845.3113. In such cases, a staff member from the office will go to your student’s classroom and notify her/him of the emergency and ask him/her to contact a family member as soon as possible. If the emergency occurs after 5:00 pm, families can contact the University Police Department at 979.845.2345 and ask that someone from the  Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) respond to the situation.
