Emergency Preparedness Checklist for Researchers

Laboratory equipment, materials and research can be protected during emergency situations by taking precautions that will minimize the impact of dangerous conditions (e.g. wind, rain, flooding) and/or loss of services (electric, heat, water). Continuity planning is an effort to ensure that essential functions of the University can continue across a wide range of potential emergencies. Several steps you can take as an individual are described in this document.
