Emergency preparedness for parents or family members

Preparedness Checklist

Emphasize the importance of having an Emergency Supply Kit—lead by example and make or purchase one for your home.
Make an Emergency Plan with your children and other family members that establishes multiple methods to contact each other.

Go over the safety measures for the following potential hazards:

Your Role During an Emergency

Use resources made available by UAF in order to obtain new, up-to-date information. This will include the UAF on Alert website where incident updates are posted.
Do not panic if you cannot reach your child. Cell phones do not usually work following a large-scale emergency.
Do not come to campus during an emergency, unless directed to do so. Additional individuals and traffic on campus will inhibit response efforts.
