Make a Plan.

makeaplanAre you prepared for an emergency?

Making a plan is fundamental in personal preparedness and is an essential part of preparing for, responding to, and recovering from any incident or emergency you may face. The George Washington University has developed its own Emergency Operations Plan that is intended to address all types of hazards, called an all-hazards approach, and that establishes policies, methodology, responsibilities and operations designed to effectively and efficiently address the needs of GW during an emergency. 

Individuals should plan for the following:

Get Away/Evacuate
  • Know alternate exit routes
  • Identify assembly areas (near & far)
Shelter-in-Place
  • Identify a safe location to shelter
  • Know how to protect and isolate yourself from the threat
Communication
  • Consider a variety of ways to keep in contact with family, friends, roommates and co-workers in case telecommuncations and information technology infrastructure is damaged or overwhelmed
People with Access and Functional Needs
  • Include family, friends, roommates and co-workers in your plan by helping them understand your needs during an emergency
