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 University Police Department (UPD) can assist families in contacting their student. Families can contact UPD at 979.845.2345.
