During lease signing you received information from the American Red Cross about preparing your own personal emergency response kit.
For the next 4 Mondays we’ll highlight some important ways that you can be prepared in the event of an emergency or natural disaster.

We all know that we need to take steps to be prepared in an emergency.  But just as we need to have fire alarms, 72 hour kits and a safe place to meet our families in cases of emergencies, we also must have strategies in place to protect our families legally in times of emergencies.
East Tennessee State University is continually preparing for the possibility of disaster on campus.
All students, faculty, staff should familiarize themselves with the university's general emergency procedures. Register for approved East Tennessee State University emergency communications and other important information via text message and email, hosted by Rave Mobile Safety. This year, as you make your new year resolutions Resolve To Be Ready!  Pledge To Prepare!  The BEST time to prepare for emergencies is BEFORE they occur.  Click here to learn how. Emergencies can happen unexpectedly in communities just like ours, to people just like you. During and following an emergency police, fire and rescue personnel may not always be able to reach you quickly, such as if trees and power lines are down or if they’re overwhelmed by demand.
Be prepared…following a disaster or large scale emergency you may be on your own and need to take care of yourself and your family.   Emergency responders and relief personnel will come but it may take hours, possibly days, for them to reach everyone!
Local, state and federal emergency officials repeatedly stress the following – you should have a disaster supply kit, which is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.  Your kit should include at least a 72-hour supply of non-perishable food, water, and supplies, including medications, for each person and animal in your home. Also, since you do not know where you will be when an emergency occurs, you should also prepare a kit for your work and car.
One of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family is plan!  Please consider this…we don’t control when disasters strike.  Your family may not be together…It may be dark and your family is sleeping…It may be while you are at work and children are in school, daycare, etc.


What will you do?   Where will you go?    How will you reunite if you and your family are separated? As much as possible, involve all family members in the planning process.  Once the family emergency plan is complete – be sure to give a copy to all family members AND practice your plan!
Keep in mind…developing and practicing an emergency plan will: 1) improve your family’s confidence in their ability to handle an emergency, and 2) help them be better prepared if you’re separated when an emergency occurs.
Knowing what to do before, during and after an emergency is a critical part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.  Protect yourself and your families… remain updated on incidents and warnings affecting our community. Reverse 911  Lehigh County provides its residents and visitors with Reverse 911 community notifications in the event of emergency situations or during other situations that may warrant community notification, such as during major or prolonged weather events. Reverse 911 Notifications are provided via a telephone notification system that will dial each telephone number in the system within the affected area and provide the person who answers with any pertinent information regarding the emergency. Those who have landline telephone service provided by VOIP services, such as Vonage, Magic Jack, and other companies need to register their home telephone number in order to receive alerts from our system. PLEASE NOTE that during times of widespread emergency situations, cellular telephone networks may be overloaded and messages may not be sent by the wireless carriers in a timely manner.
Major disasters can overwhelm first responder agencies.  The whole community can participate in programs and activities to make their families, homes and communities safer from risks and threats. CERT is about “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” in your own neighborhood during an emergency.  Following a disaster, these citizen-responders use their training as part of their neighborhood team to help others when professional responders are overwhelmed or not immediately available. CERT training is a program that educates citizens about the hazards they face in their community and trains them in lifesaving skills.   Following a disaster, these citizen-responders use their training as part of their neighborhood team to help others when professional responders are overwhelmed or not immediately available. If a disaster struck our community and it caused emergency responders to be delayed, what would you do?
If you would help your neighbors until the emergency responders arrived then the time to get involved is now…Join the Upper Macungie CERT! Slideshare uses cookies to improve functionality and performance, and to provide you with relevant advertising.


This is a great location for your roommates or family members to congregate and to find each other after a large scale emergency.  Housing Assistants or other volunteers will be deployed to each NAP site and will check folks in on a roster. As an ETSU student, faculty member, or staff member, personal preparedness is necessary at the individual level.
They are posted in all ETSU buildings. These procedures give students, faculty, and staff specific information about what to do in the event of fire, severe weather, power outages, and hazardous material releases. The most important thing you can do is be able to take care of yourself and those in your care.
Pennsylvania uses AlertPA to provide citizens and partners with timely information to assist them in making informed decisions. These notifications are meant to provide information that is critical to the safety and well being of the county’s residents and visitors. If you are not sure whether your telephone service is VOIP, contact your telephone provider for confirmation. Wireless telephone numbers are not automatically included in the Lehigh County Reverse 911 system and must be registered by the phone’s owner. The posting also provides specific procedures to follow for building evacuation and response to the GoldAlert emergency notification system. You are responsible for providing your own drinking water and food as well as any other personal items you might need in case of an emergency.
