Crisis Training Videos

To help prepare you in the event of an emergency, the University has produced crisis training videos. They include examples of how to respond to different emergency situations, and they provide important information about campus resources and crisis communications procedures. They require about 20 to 30 minutes of your time, and they include questions to test your knowledge.
