Safety & Security Planning

Georgia Tech is enhancing the existing efforts on youth programming by sharing best practices and centralized resources to ensure a positive experience for all.

American Camps Association Guidance
Emergency Planning
  • Make sure to have at least 2 mobile emergency contact numbers for each youth participant in your group.
  • Bring the youth participants' medical information sheets with you, especially those with allergies. 
  • If your youth program is using campus dining services, know which ones can accommodate food allergies.
  • Know the name and full address of the dorm building you are staying in, if applicable.
  • For dorms: review the evacuation plan and the meeting area with all the youth participants in your program.
  • Be sure to have youth program staff added to the Georgia Tech Emergency Notification System (GTENS) while on campus. 
  • Program the Georgia Tech Police Department (GTPD) number in your phone: 404-894-2500; and have youth participants do the same, if they have a phone.
  • REMEMBER: Calling 911 from a campus phone will contact GTPD; calling 911 from a mobile phone will contact Atlanta 911 dispatch.
