Personal Preparedness


Personal Preparedness

Emergency preparedness takes place at many levels. From the Federal, State, County, City, Tribal, and all the way down to our campus community, efforts are made to prevent, plan for, mitigate, and potentially recover from a disaster. The reality, however, is that emergencies and their outcomes often take place at a very personal level. They can affect us at home, at work, in the classrooms, or during our travels. We each have a responsibility to play a role in emergency preparedness and response, and to be able to take care of ourselves, our families, friends, co-workers, and classmate until more advanced assistance becomes available. In other words, emergency preparedness and response starts with YOU!
