Emergency Preparedness Information
This website is intended to provide important emergency information and resources to the Campus community so we will collectively be prepared for an emergency incident. We encourage you to take time to review the University Emergency Response Guide.

National Campus Fire Safety Month
In recognition of Campus Fire Safety Month the University has partnered with the Center for Campus Fire Safety and its sponsors to bring an annual fire prevention and fire safety outreach to our students, both on and off Campus. From September 1st to September 25th students have the opportunity to enter an online contest and win a pizza party for 50, T-Shirts, or an iPad. In cooperation with Associated Students, University Housing, and Public Affairs, contest flyers and fire safety tip sheets are being posted throughout Campus and have been shared on social medica. Additionally, all students have received both contest and related fire safety information via student announcements. Please help promote Campus Fire Safety Month!
National Emergency Preparedness Month
The theme of the 2015 National Preparedness Month is "Don't Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today." The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is providing weekly based themes throughout the month to highlight various aspects of preparedness; this includes floods, wildfires, hurricanes, and power outages. Week Five (5) includes National PrepareAthon Day which is on September 30th.
While we realize this is a busy time of year for the Campus community, we encourage that you take a few minutes to consider your personal preparedness, check your disaster kit, and take steps as needed to improve your plan. For more information, please visit Ready Campaign
