Texas 4-H Roundup / LEAD Academy Safety & Security



Headquarters Information
Texas 4-H Roundup headquarters is located on the concourse level of Reed Arena near the ticket office. Headquarters consists of the main registration desk and office area, location for posting of results, lost and found, on-site registration, and general questions.

Hours of Operation: Headquarters will be open for both pre-registration packet pick up and on-site registration during the following hours:
  • Monday, June 10 : 11 am - 1:00 pm (LEAD Academy Kickoff event)  MSC 2400
  • Monday, June 10: 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm (Roundup attendees)

  • Thursday, June 12: 7:00 am - 6:00 pm
Contacting Headquarters: Please refer to the numbers and email addresses below in order to contact Roundup headquarters throughout the event.  

In case of an emergency, all participants are asked to first contact their assigned chaperone or County Extension Agent before contacting Roundup Headquarters.

Nametags
EVERYONE attending Texas 4-H Roundup must register and have a valid name badge on at all times. This is a requirement of the event for safety, liability and insurance purposes. In the event of an emergency, it is important for us to know who is at Roundup. If you or any parents, volunteers or family members did not register via 4-H CONNECT, you can register on-site upon arrival. Reed Arena ushers will be located throughout the facility and ensuring all participants are wearing our event badges. Those without a badge may be  stopped to determine if they are supposed to be at the event and then directed to registration to complete the on-site registration process.

While we ask that name badges be worn at all times to help everyone identify all who are there with our event, we realize that some contests will prefer you not to wear your badge. Therefore, we ask that contestants wear their nametags to the contest for check-in, then place it in their pocket or bag, or give to a parent/CEA/volunteer until after they have completed the contest.

Our Future 4-H Members (those 2nd grade and younger) that will be attending Texas 4-H Roundup with family members will have complimentary name badges provided to them at the on-site registration desk. Please be sure and pick one up for them to wear during the event. On the back of the badge is a place to write their name and emergency contact information should they be separated from you.

Your Safety While at Texas A&M University
To ensure safety while on campus, please always remember the following:
  • DO NOT accept rides from anyone!
  • DO NOT walk across campus by yourself!
  • DO NOT leave campus with anyone but your designated agent/chaperone!
  • DO NOT tamper with any fire alarm.  Tampering with fire alarms is against the law, and if caught, you will be prosecuted.
  • DO report any unusual activities to any Roundup staff member or any county Extension agent immediately!
There are 115 blue light phones located throughout the Texas A&M campus. These phones are distinguished by the 12-foot pole with the blue light on top and "Police Help" written on the front and sides. In an emergency, simply open the door on the weatherproof box and press the red button. The University Police dispatcher will immediately know your exact location. Talk directly into the speaker in the center of the phone.
