Unfortunately we never know when an emergency might happen. They come in the form
of severe weather, accidents, and terrorist attacks. Planning now for how you would
respond will help you remain calm, think clearly and react appropriately to any disaster.
Taking responsibility for your own safety by being prepared with plans and an emergency supply kit not only increases your ability to survive, but reduces the workload of first responders, emergency medical services, fire fighters and law enforcement.
Emergency preparedness is the responsibility of every individual in the Western Carolina University community. Take this short quiz to determine your readiness quotient. Take time also to familiarize yourself with the campus Annual Safety Report (PDF) that details information about notification, crime, and incidents on our campus.
Attached is a checklist for students of Western Carolina University to assess their knowledge in being prepared for an emergency.
