It’s hurricane season. Are you ready?

June 1 is the first day of hurricane season. It’s a good time to ask: ARE YOU READY?

Augusta University’s Critical Event Preparedness and Response team (CEPaR) has multiple initiatives underway for AU faculty, staff and students to help keep our campuses and community safe in emergencies.

Join the AU culture of preparedness: Empower yourself with the tools and knowledge to help keep you, your loved ones, your friends and neighbors safe no matter what happens. More information to come.

In the meantime, read and practice these seven steps from FEMA before a hurricane strikes.
