Emergency Preparedness Week:


May 7-13 is Emergency Preparedness Week in Canada and it is a good time to remind ourselves of the emergency preparedness and response information that is available on campus.  Here at Queen’s, there are many people who work to ensure a safe, healthy environment for students, staff, and faculty. This email includes information about the resources available to you in the event that an emergency occurs.


The Queen’s University Emergency Response Procedures can be reviewed on the Campus Security and Emergency Services website.  While you are there, please consider printing a copy for your desk or workplace. Queen’s also has an emergency response plan to ensure that the university is prepared in the event of a broad range of emergencies.  Also, please remind yourself how the university’s emergency notification system works what it would sound like if activated in the event of an emergency.   For access to emergency information while on the go, download the SeQure app for your mobile phone or follow Campus Security and Emergency Services on Twitter and on Facebook.


On the university’s Environmental Health and Safety website, you can access information on individualized workplace emergency response plans for employees who have a disability that requires accommodation and a template to create lab specific emergency response procedures.


Prepare for an emergency at home


Emergency Preparedness Week is also a good time to consider how you would respond to an emergency at home. In an emergency, being prepared is a key component of positive outcomes.
