Ongoing attention to national security issues leaves many of us wondering about the potential for a terrorism-related emergency to impact our lives in Lubbock. Texas Tech University has received no direct terrorist threats. Emergency and communication plans will be activated when and if our campus ever receives such a threat. These plans will be coordinated with the City and County of Lubbock. The University will provide instructions about a specific situation and issues such as taking shelter inside campus buildings or evacuating. Students, faculty and staff can check out the following links so you can be more informed and better prepared for emergencies during these unusual times.
