While we normally go about or normal work at WCMC without facing major emergencies, an emergency can occur at any time. To ensure emergency contacts, procedures and other information are readily available to you, a smartphone app and desktop shortcut has been developed.
This app and shortcut have been pushed to all ITS-tagged Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices. It provides a shortcut to this emergency.weill.cornell.edu website, the place to go for emergency announcements, contact numbers, procedures, and planning. The app makes it easier for students, faculty, and staff to access emergency information quickly from their desktop, laptops, and mobile devices.
The ideal time to visit the emergency.weill.cornell.edu site should not be in the middle of an emergency (although you can use it then, too). Whenever you have a spare minute, click on the app or visit the website and review information available. The site lets you keep tabs on any important announcements and review procedures of how to respond to various emergencies, like workplace violence, suspicious packages, and more. The application should already be on your ITS-tagged device; just look for this icon:
