As we have done in the past, we are once again asking you to help us distribute important safety information to our students. Emergencies can happen anywhere and at any time, so it is important that we take a minute to prepare ourselves for a situation in which our safety could depend on our ability to react quickly.

Before the first day of class this semester, we ask that you visit There, you will find two items: A brief script we hope you will read on the first day of class and a one-page handout that we would like to have distributed to all students either by hand or as part of your syllabus.

These two items contain valuable information that can keep us all safer in the event that a fire, weather emergency or active threat should emerge. By distributing this information, we are ensuring that everyone in our campus community is empowered with tools they can use to protect themselves and others.

We also encourage you to empower yourself by visiting There are steps you can take right now to prepare should you find yourself in an emergency situation.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to enhance the safety of our campus community.
