16/12 Student Preparedness

As a student on campus we don’t expect you to carry around 3 days of food and water; however, you can be part of the solution by having 16 ounces of water and 1200 calories (3 protein bars) with you at all times. That way if you are ever in an emergency and you need to hide in place, secure in place, and shelter in place, you will have enough to keep you going for at least a day.”


If you’ve got a car you might have room for more resources.
