Emergency resources added to Web
Princeton NJ -- An Emergency Preparedness link has been added to the University home page to facilitate access to the most up-to-date information and important news alerts.
The link on the home page leads to a Web section http://www.princeton.edu/pep that includes pertinent resources and guidelines gathered by the Emergency Preparedness Task Force, the University's news alerts and advice on ways individuals and departments can be prepared. Also included are links to external sources of information, such as Web and broadcast media; travel advisories; and federal, state and local government resources.
A page of frequently asked questions and answers about emergency preparedness was added to this section most recently. The page offers information about what to do if a "severe" threat condition (red) is announced, how information will be distributed in the event of an emergency, and guidelines for evacuation and sheltering in place if an emergency occurs. The page will be updated as new concerns or suggestions arise. Questions can be submitted to the task force at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to keep informed of important University alerts by regularly checking the home page <www.princeton.edu> and their personal e-mail and voice-mail systems. In the event of an actual emergency, the campus community will be notified and instructed through the Web, e-mail and voice-mail.
