Who We Are

The UA Emergency Preparedness Team (EPT) is comprised of UA staff who meet to discuss emergency issues and preparation  We strive to create accountability for all staff members after the event of an emergency by creating awareness and providing training opportunities.

Since its inception in the spring of 2006, EPT has provided over 200 individual workstation emergency support kits to staff members. It has also offered free first aid and CPR training through Environmental Health & Safety. The team has put out the emergency preparedness message through our regular meetings, Washington Commons Weekly newsletter, email list, and now through our website.
