WCU has a range of strategies in place to promote a safe environment and respond to
emergencies as part of the institution’s emergency preparedness efforts.
Take responsibility for your own safety by being prepared with plans and an emergency supply kit. This not only increases your ability to survive, but reduces the risk and 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. Unfortunately we never know when an emergency might happen, but planning now for how you would respond will help you remain calm, think clearly and react appropriately to any disaster.
