Learn what protective measures to take before, during, and after an emergency
Emergency preparedness is not the sole concern of families and homeowners, students need to take steps to ensure they are ready for whatever emergencies they may encounter as well. Most communities may be impacted by several types of hazards during a lifetime and Flagstaff and NAU are no different. Knowing what to do before, during and after an emergency is a critical part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.
Some of the basic protective actions are similar for multiple hazards. For example, safety is necessary when experiencing all hazards, whether this means sheltering or evacuating depends on the specific emergency. Developing a communications plan or making an emergency supply kit are the same for accidental emergencies, natural disasters, and even terrorism.

Before a disaster, learn how be informed if there is an impending hazardous event, and familiarize yourself with the signs of emergency events that come without warning.
