Emergency Preparedness in 10 Minutes

Emergency Preparedness is Everyone’s Responsibility.

The UGA Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP) certainly recognizes this fact and developed a brief online interactive learning module with a campus community sense of preparedness in mind. The module’s intent is to assist in preparing students, faculty, staff, parents and visitors to be ready for a variety of emergencies that could occur on campus. OEP’s online training module is perfect for this training need and even offers the option for students, faculty and staff to receive a certificate of completion once a brief quiz is finalized.

The module was developed in partnership with the UGA Web Instructional Development Office at the Georgia Center with content assistance from the UGA Police Department and the UGA Environmental Safety Division. Based on requests from various University departments and students, OEP worked to develop the interactive module for the University community in order to provide a condensed summary of important emergency preparedness reminders, emergency response procedures, crime prevention tips and information on free resources. Additionally, the training modules include optional video segments that are used to provide a visual reminder to enhance the usefulness of the training module. Many campus departments are looking for a concise and easy method to inform new and existing faculty and staff on campus regarding emergency notification methods, building emergency procedures and on the availability of various emergency preparedness resources.
