Resolve to be ready
This New Year’s Eve, nearly 50 percent of Americans will make at least one resolution as they look toward the new year. Risk Management Services encourages staff, faculty and students to make a new year’s resolution that is both important and easy to keep: prepare for emergencies.

Risk Management Services encourages the campus community to visit, call 1-800-BE-READY, or contact the department at 278-6456 to learn how to prepare your families, homes and departments for all types of emergencies including natural and human-caused disasters. Free materials, including family emergency plan templates and sample business continuity plans, are available through these resources. These materials will provide the campus community with tools to make a New Year’s resolution that will bring peace of mind.
