Preparing for hurricane season

With hurricane season upon us, UF departments and individuals are encouraged to revisit the university’s and their own emergency plans—or, if need be, to put one in place.

Keep Current. Stay Current.
UF’s key method of communicating with UF faculty, staff and students in emergency situations is the UF Alert system. You can ensure your location and emergency contact settings are up-to-date in the myUFL system so you receive UF Alerts. To make sure your information is current so you stay current on emergency notifications, log in to the myUFL system and select “Update Emergency Contact” to customize the UF Alert notifications you receive.

Other ways to stay informed
Anyone, including family members, may elect to receive UF Alerts for the Gainesville campus by downloading the GatorSafe app onto their mobile device. You can also monitor the @UF Public Safety Twitter feed, and the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network offers a free Florida Storms app to stay informed about potential weather and other hazards.

Resources to help you get prepared
UF’s Emergency Management website provides a wealth of hurricane preparedness information and resources, including hurricane tracking.

Remember to keep current to stay current throughout the season by keeping your information up-to-date. Stay connected and stay safe this season.
