In observance of National Preparedness Month, the CU Denver Emergency Management Division (EMD) is hosting a month-long series of community events and classes during September. National Preparedness Month exists to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen anytime, both on and off campus.
“Our goal is to support students, faculty, and staff by providing tools, resources, and trainings that truly make an impact toward our campus’s resiliency,” said Garrey Martinez, emergency manager at CU Denver’s Emergency Management Division. “National Preparedness Month is a great opportunity for our campus constituents to engage with emergency preparedness and safety, and we are thrilled to be part of that effort in welcoming everyone back to campus for the fall 2021 semester.”
The CU Denver EMD provides guidance and support of emergency preparedness for the downtown Denver campus, as well as the Anschutz Medical Campus. Through collaboration and coordination with all students, faculty, staff, visitors, and external partners, the division is continually striving to create a culture of preparedness for the campus community.
