Emergency Preparedness

An emergency can happen at any time. Take a few minutes to think about your plan now, so you’ll be ready just in case something happens.

Be Prepared For an Emergency

Even as a student, there are things you can do to prepare for an emergency — including putting together a personal health kit. We also encourage you to review the recommendations from Emergency Management.

In the event of an emergency, UB will provide information to keep you safe and up-to-date. View announcements at emergency.buffalo.edu, UB's official site for emergency notifications.
Students, faculty and staff should follow emergency procedures to keep themselves safe and free emergency responders to resolve an incident quickly.
Planning in advance for emergencies empowers you to act confidently should a situation arise and can help keep you and others safe.
Whether you’re living on-campus or off-campus, it’s a good idea to have a personal health kit filled with things you might need in case you’re not feeling well. Pack a kit before your first semester — then check it at the beginning of each semester — and you’ll save time and money if you get sick later.
