Safety is a shared responsibility. Keep yourself, others and property safe by following the procedures outlined below to prepare for and respond to an emergency situation. 


Take these steps before any emergency occurs.

  1. Review and update your contact information using this guide in order to ensure that you receive timely information in the event of a threat to safety affecting the University.

  3. Review the emergency procedures outlined below and your department's emergency procedures, if applicable.
  4. Consider displaying this flyer in your office or other common areas within your department/unit as a quick reference. Alternatively, screenshot or save to your phone.
