Hazard Preparedness

Quick Reference Posters

Use the campus-specific quick reference posters to display emergency action procedures in your building. Use the poster as a quick reference for appropriate emergency action procedures to take in response to an emergency.


Weather Resources

Preparedness is the key in dealing with any weather hazard. The university sends National Weather Service issued tornado warnings via the ECU Alert system. The ability to react appropriately to the warning means having a plan before the warning is issued. Additional information about weather resources is provided at ECU Alert Information.
