 Information on Hurricanes

History teaches that a lack of hurricane awareness and preparation are common threads among major hurricane disasters. By knowing your vulnerability and what actions you should take, you can reduce the effects of a hurricane disaster. Some keys to hurricane safety are to prepare for the risk and to act on those preparations when alerted by emergency officials


Evacuation Drills

Are you ready for the NIH Spring Drills?  Do you know how to safety get out of your building during an emergency? Do you know your Occupant Emergency Coordinator (OEC)?


During an emergency at work or home, do you know how to evacuate from your place of work or home?  Do your emergency plans include buddies to help you during an emergency?
