Emergency Preparedness Week

May 2016

May 1-7 is Emergency Preparedness Week, which aims to raise awareness about the importance of emergency planning and response.

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 unlikely event that an emergency occurs.

Queen’s University Emergency Response Procedures

Would you know what to do if there was a power outage on campus? What if there was a chemical spill or leak in your building, or if you heard a message broadcast over the external speakers of the University’s Emergency Notification System.

Find out or remind yourself by reviewing the Queen's University Emergency Response Procedures. While you are there, print 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.
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 think about how you would respond to an emergency at home. In an emergency, being prepared is a key component of good outcomes.

Information on how to prepare your family for an emergency is available at the following links:
