Campus Preparedness

Do you know what to do during an emergency or disaster?

Emergency and disaster preparedness is a shared responsibility. Tennessee State University provides information regarding emergency preparedness to the campus via printed materials and the college’s website. Additionally, the college facilitates emergency training for members of the campus community. Faculty, staff, students, and guests at Tennessee State University should commit to personal preparedness and because general preparedness guidelines may not apply in every emergency, should integrate their own preparedness activities with the circumstances of an emergency. Although voluntary, Tennessee State University encourages faculty, staff, students, and guests with disabilities to notify the college of any need for assistance in planning for emergencies.
