WCM Emergency Website and Emergency Information Hotline (212-746-WCMC / 212-746-9262)

The WCM emergency website and hotline number provide emergency information to the WCM community. 

Weill Cornell Alert Emergency Notification System

WCM maintains "Weill Cornell Alert" to provide emergency information and instructions. Weill Cornell Alert can send simultaneous notifications to all students, faculty, and staff; or select groups via phone call, text messaging, and/or email.

To update your emergency contact information in Weill Cornell Alert, follow the instructions on the Updating Weill Cornell Alert page.

Emergency Response Guides

WCM has prepared response guides for many types of emergencies (e.g., active shooter, bomb threat, fire, hurricane, hazardous material spills, and severe weather) which may impact the College.

Fire safety and evacation procedures have been developed for each building where students, faculty and staff have classes and/or work. These Building-Specific FIre Safety and Evacuationb Procedures are included in the WCM Fire Safety and Emergency Action Plan available on the EHS intranet.  Please note that student Residential Fire Safety Plans are seperate response guides for buildings where students are housed and available at the website below.

Residential fire safety plans and notices have been established to provide general fire prevention and preparedness information and help protect occupants in the event of a residential fire. These plans and notices also provide basic building information, including construction details, exits, and evacuation instructions. Short summary videos also provide building-specific evacuation procedures as well as vital emergency preparedness information.

These response guides outline the steps WCM students should follow in response to emergencies, in addition to the emergency-specific guidance provided by the WCM Emergency Operations Team.

This guide is a summary of the security features available at clinical teaching locations attended by WCM students during clerkship rotation.

The Annual Campus Security and Fire Safety Report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on-campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Weill Cornell Medicine; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning sexual assault, and other matters.
