About emergency blog

This web site is a backup emergency information portal for the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas.

This site has also been designed to allow contacts within UTMB's large entities or departments to access and use to communicate with their mployees, students, other constituents or customers.

Messages appear at the top of the home page as they are posted. Visitors may view all messages, or sort them by category (entity or department). Comments will be enabled with the site is activated and in use, providing a bulletin board function for the UTMB community.

If you have questions, comments or suggestions, please contact the Office of Public Affairs at (409) 772-2618.
