Emergency Management & Preparedness

What's Happening in Emergency Preparedness:

  • We our renewing out emergency test message system RAVE! This system is used for critical action items only. Last year we utilized the system twice to notify personnel of school closings (pretty important) and once for our annual tornado drill - a total of three times all year! All students will automatically be opted in. If you are staff who would like to opt in, or if you're a student who wishes to opt out, complete the following steps:

    • Sign into RAVE here
    • Enter your KUMC user name and password (the same as when you log on to the network)
    • Click "Emergency Contact Info"
    • From this page you can opt in, opt out, or update your information
    • Students who have opted out should see "You are not currently subscribed to receive emergency notification messages. {Opt-In]" on your enroll and pay homepage. 
    • For questions - email University Emergency Management at:   

  • Annual fire drills are occurring across campus! Remember, when the fire drill sounds, University buildings EVACUATE. Leave your building and meet at your appropriate emergency assembly area. Email University Emergency Management at: with questions.

  • Has your Building Emergency Liaison picked up your weather radio yet? Emergency Management has partnered with the Metropolitan Emergency Managers Committee to receive discounted weather radios after graciously being awarded a grant from The University of Kansas Auxiliary Department. There will be one for each building - Building Emergency Liaisons are to pick them up from Kelly Morken. Want to apply for your own grant? Click radios
