Emergency Preparedness

An emergency can occur at any time and at any place. It can take many forms; fire, severe weather, workplace violence, just to name a few.  The university’s “Hokie Ready” slogan is a reminder that emergency preparedness is every Hokie’s responsibility.  Faculty, staff and students are all responsible for being prepared.

Being prepared for an emergency, both at work and at home, is important for your safety as well as the safety of those around you.
