Tropical Activity
Seismic Activity
PLAN AHEAD
Plan and participate in an earthquake Shake Out drill.  International ShakeOut Day is October 17 but you can participate any day.  https://www.shakeout.org/
This resource includes videos, flyers, and checklists customized for many organizations and situations.
Plan your evacuation route and learn to shelter in place.  www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/evacuation/shelterinplace.html
If evacuation is likely, don’t forget to check out the status of road conditions and your accommodation plans and have a back-up plan.
Have a current and deep vendor list. After a disaster is not the time to find out that your vendor contact is no longer valid, a vendor no longer has a contract with your institution, or that the vendor is too busy to help you in your time of need.
 
TAKE ACTION
Gather and organize your emergency supplies.
