National Preparedness Month: Update Personal Info to Stay Informed

National Preparedness Month: Update Personal Info to Stay Informed

Houston, Sept. 8, 2017 —In the event of an emergency at the University of Houston, the UH ALERT emergency notification system will be used to provide prompt notification to students, faculty and staff.

To ensure that critical information is received during an emergency, it is important that the UH community confirm that their personal information is correct in MyUH (for students) or PASS (for faculty and staff).

This is especially true for cell phone numbers. In order to receive emergency text messages from the University, a cell phone number must be provided in the system. For steps on how to update personal information, visit the UH ALERT website. In addition, follow UH ALERT on Twitter and like it on Facebook.

September is National Preparedness Month. Every week this month, the UH Office of Emergency Management is providing important information and tips to the UH community.
