We have had a beneficial month-long look at safety and we are ending this month with emergency preparedness.  We all need to work together to ensure that when an emergency happens on campus everyone makes it out safely. 

What do you do if you see an armed subject on campus?

Immediately contact CTX PD at (512) 313-3311.

Poster - Are you Ready for ThisIf the armed subject is outside the building, immediately call CTX PD at (512) 313-3311, then:

  • If it is safe to do so:
    • Turn off the lights, close and lock all windows and doors. 
    • Attempt to get everyone low on the floor and out of sight.
    • Move to a safe area of the building and remain there until an “all clear” signal is given by an authorized, known voice.  Unfamiliar voices could be suspects trying to lure you into danger. 

 

If an armed subject is inside the building, call CTX PD at (512) 313-3311, then:

  • Give police your name, location and any suspect information/description. 
  • If it is safe to do so:
    • Flee the area and avoid the danger.
    • If you determine it is unsafe to leave the building, lock all doors and windows.
    • Get down on the floor or under a desk and remain silent.
    • Attempt to locate a secure area, and get everyone low on the floor and out of sight. 
    • Wait for an “all clear” signal from an authorized, known voice.

 

What do you do if a disruptive individual comes into your classroom or office?

  • Contact the CTX PD at (512) 313-3311.
  • Give your name, location and a brief explanation of the situation.
  • If possible, give police the name and/or description of the individual involved.

Please be sure to review and familiarize yourself with the Concordia University Texas Safety Protocol.

Early Alert Form:

The Early Alert report is for the use of faculty, staff, students, friends and parents of CTX students to report any concerning or red flag comments, behaviors or incidents involving Concordia students. Although Early Alerts can be reported anonymously, it is helpful to those who will follow up on the report if there is someone that can be contacted for additional questions.

Submitted reports are sent via email to the Director of Student Services and the Director of the Student Success Center (SSC). They will provide follow up on the report as needed.

If this is an emergency or there is an immediate need for intervention/assistance call 911 or CTX PD at (512) 313-3311. CTX PD will contact necessary support staff if it is after business hours.

encouraged to enter and/or verify ALL personal emergency contact information in MyInfo. The CTX ALERT system will only be used during critical emergency situations and never for marketing or non-emergency communication. Keeping contact information in MyInfo updated assures emergency messages will be properly delivered.

  1. Log on at myinfo.concordia.edu using your CTX ID and PIN.
  2. Select the “Personal Information” link from the main menu.
