Emergencies can be unpredictable. Whether it is a sudden severe storm, a disease outbreak or an active shooter, it is best to be as prepared as possible. That could mean having necessary supplies or thinking quick on your feet. Make sure that you have signed up for or updated your contact preference on Dillard’s emergency alert system. Also, make sure that you are following the University’s communication channels that deliver information instantly–email, social media and the website. The time to prepare is before an incident occurs.
