UTHSC offers emergency training program

The Health Science Center will offer a training course to all faculty, staff and students interested in learning the university's emergency procedure plan. Participants also will learn how to operate the university's new emergency evacuation chairs. The Health Science Center recently purchased five of the chairs to help evacuate mobility-limited individuals in an emergency.

The class is scheduled from 9 to 10 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4, in lecture room 2.024 near the Briscoe Library. Anyone interested in attending may contact Justine Skinner at ext. 7-2691 or by e-mail at

The Americans with Disabilities Act coordinating committee and the institutional safety office are sponsoring the program.

If any faculty, staff or students wish to share their holiday celebrations with these individuals, they may call the office of student life, ext. 7-2654, or send e-mail to Dr. Sylvia Fernandez at
