R U Ready Emergency Preparedness

The R U Ready Emergency Preparedness web page has been fully migrated to the revised Metropolitan State University Website.  The R U READY link on the university homepage is located in the lower left corner.  R U Ready is a valuable resource that provides safety, security and emergency preparation information.

Being prepared means being ready for many kinds of situations.  This information is intended to raise awareness about the importance of emergency preparedness and to encourage preparation in our community.  Protecting Metropolitan State students, employees, guests and property is our shared responsibility.

Some valuable links from R U READY web page include:

Emergency Information Sheet

Emergency Procedures

Classroom Emergency Safety

Lock Down and Active Shooter

We can prepare ourselves for emergencies by reviewing this information and becoming informed about the emergency plans and procedures within our community.  These plans do not cover all possible emergencies and the community should exercise a heightened sense of awareness on the campus and contact Safety Officers with safety related interests.
