Emergency Preparedness

Overview: What is emergency preparedness?


Emergency preparedness has many aspects, one of which is our personal safety and security. As we work on campus, it is imperative that you wear your ID card where it can be seen and that you courteously challenge strangers that do not display an ID.

In addition, each employee or student should become familiar with their department’s emergency plan and evacuation routes. Identify fellow employees that may need assistance during an evacuation and create informal buddy teams that you can group into when responding to an unfamiliar situation.

Another aspect is family preparedness. There are a number of simple and inexpensive things you can do to make your family more prepared. Visit the Ready Colorado Web site for an excellent overview of family preparedness and a series of checklists that you will find helpful in preparing your family for an emergency.
