We strongly encourage all of our community members to read our spotlight on “Make a Plan” and visit our links on the right.  If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to our staff.

Emergency Protective Actions

The following eight minute video has been produced by the University of Rhode Island.  This video provides useful information on what to do during a threat on campus.  It also includes the terminology used by the University’s Department of Public Safety.  In addition to this video you can also schedule a training through our office, and we encourage you to do so.

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
