TUready is Temple University's emergency management program and a great resource for what you can do to be aware and be prepared in the event of an incident.
TUready is based on all-hazards planning for a fully integrated university-wide emergency management program inclusive of all four phases of planning: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

How to Register for TUalert
Temple has multiple ways to communicate critical information: TUsiren, TUalert and other timely warnings. Each method is designed for a specific purpose.
Students & Employees
Please take a moment right now and become TUready. Registering your mobile phone number and other information is the first step in receiving critical information in the event of an emergency. Instructions on how to register are detailed on the TUready website.
The TUalert notification system is designed to deliver critical information to our students, faculty and staff in an expedited manner. While we understand a parent's concern, our priority is getting information to the immediate Temple community. Adding parents to our system (that currently delivers messages to over 51,000 recipients) would delay this process.
However, when an emergency event requires ongoing communication over an extended period of time, information may be updated on the university home page and available on the university hotline (215-204-1975) following a TUalert or activation of the TUsiren. In addition, the university often uses social media to inform our extended community. Look for Temple University on Twitter.
