Red Cross Safe and Well

In an emergency, communication about the safety of the members of our university community is a key concern. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to utilize the Red Cross Safe and Well website for leaving and retrieving messages during an emergency event. Once they register on the Red Cross site, faculty, staff and students can list themselves as safe and well. Then friends and family can search a single source for their updates.
