Office of Emergency Management builds Emergency Kits

OEM helps students to build emergency kits

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) partnered with Student Housing and Residential Life to help students learn more about building an Emergency Kit. Students were able to build their own starter emergency kit. The kits included a poncho, nitrile gloves, waterproof document bag, bug repellant wipe, sunscreen, mini-first aid kit, crank flashlight, lip balm, whistle, hand sanitizer, and a granola bar with a bottle of water. 

OEM visited Cougar Place and the Quad to assist residential students in building their kits.  Emergency Management Specialist, Brian Hall, added that "The residents really enjoyed learning about emergency kits. We had over 50 students participate! I'm grateful for our partnership with SHRL."
