Your safety and security is our top priority. That's why we have implemented a Campus Alert System for all students, faculty, and staff. In the event of an emergency, you can have critical weather and other emergency-related alerts sent directly to your cell, home, office phone, and email.

Preparing for an emergency is your personal responsibility.

Preparing for an emergency is your personal responsibility. It's important to have an emergency kit under or beside your desk or bed. We recommend that your emergency kit contain enough supplies for a 72-hour period. The following is a list of essentials you should include in your kit:

  • First aid kit and manual

  • Critical medications, copies of prescriptions

  • Bottled water

  • Flashlight and spare batteries

  • Sturdy shoes, raingear, change of clothes, sweater or jacket

  • Non-perishable foods (energy bars)

  • Blanket or sleeping bag

  • Personal hygiene items

  • Sealable plastic bags (for waste and storage)

  • Tissues, pre-moistened towelettes

  • Out-of-area emergency contact telephone number
