As a part of Emergency Preparedness Week, Carleton’s Emergency Management Officer Sal Ugarte shares his tips on how to be prepared in the event of an on-campus emergency.
Get the App
At Carleton you can receive emergency notifications on you cellphone by downloading the Carleton Mobile App. Once you download the app be sure to enable notifications under your cell phone settings. Bonus tip – if you frequently use a laptop on campus you can now download the Carleton ENS client and receive notifications right on your desktop!
Be aware of your surroundings! In an emergency it’s important to be able to assess the situation based on where you are and whether there is a threat to your health and safety. Always take a second in a new place to learn where the emergency exits are and what other exits exist in case of emergency.
Having a plan will help you to be confident in an emergency situation. Check out Carleton’s Emergency Procedures on the Carleton Mobile app, or visit our Emergency Preparedness website to learn more about responding to a variety of emergency situations.
