Emergency Information Sources - Can you hear me now?

Accurate information about impending or actual threats or emergencies can literally mean the difference between life and death.

At the University, you may hear of a dangerous situation in several ways.

Take steps now to be sure you can stay informed. Have a battery operated or crank radio ready to use, and a crank mobile phone charger so you can keep in touch with your loved ones.

A closing thought…when all else fails, there's always amateur radio. If you are a licensed amateur radio (ham) operator, we’d like to know who you are. If you’re interested in becoming licensed, we’d like to know that, too. Contact the Office of Emergency Preparedness at 434-982-0565or e-mail us at
