To further prepare the campus to respond and recover from emergency situations, the campus will conduct a terrorist-based emergency exercise between 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 22, 2006 at Atkinson Hall. For detailed information on the drill, please visit http://mmstexercise.calit2.net/index.php
If you are not directly involved in this exercise, please use this opportunity to review with colleagues and family what to do in the event of a disaster. Please review the campus Emergency Management Plan, your Department Emergency Action Plan, and your Personal Supplies Checklist for emergency events. More details on each of these topics can be located at: http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/emergencyprep
To ensure our campus is prepared for any emergency event, EH&S has developed a Campus Emergency Response Team, known as CERT. I appreciate the participation of CERT members in the emergency response exercise and am grateful to their supervisors to allowing them to attend this important event.
For questions regarding the emergency response exercise, emergency preparedness, or how you can join CERT, please contact Emergency Services Manager Phillip Van Saun at firstname.lastname@example.org or (858) 534-1064.
