Emergency Protective Actions

The following six-minute video, used with the permission of Towson University (Baltimore) and edited by URI Marketing and Communications, provides some very useful tips for how to respond safely and effectively in some emergency situations and what actions to take when directions like “lockdown,” “shelter,” “shelter in place” or “evacuate” are given.

All members of the community — students, faculty, staff and visitors — are encouraged to view the video to be better prepared to help themselves and others in an emergency. Also visit our Emergency Protective Actions Page
