"MUST KNOW" EMERGENCY INFO
When the University issues an emergency alert in response to a hazard, threat, or actual incident, everyone must know what the emergency conditions mean and basic emergency responses.
Although Appalachian State University has primary responsibility for emergency and risk planning on campus, community emergency service agencies respond to campus almost daily to emergency calls for assistance. These partners also support the University during major emergencies and/or disasters. All phone numbers provided on this page are for non-emergency business. Dial 911 (9-911 from a campus phone) or 262-8000 (8000 from a campus phone) for emergencies.
