Are you #UICReady? Surviving an Active Threat Event Heading link
The Aware and Prepared campaign is committed to putting U first and designed to educate and empower our community to prepare for, respond to, and mitigate emergencies.
This page offers a selection of active threat preparedness and responses products, tools, and resources, including our new training video to instruct our students and employees on the “Evacuate, Evade or Engage” protocol.
Finding yourself in such a situation can cause extreme panic and disorientation. But if you know what to do ahead of time, your chances of surviving this type of emergency situation are greatly increased.
A prepared UIC is a resilient UIC!

Emergency Management as a Career
As part of our campaign for National Preparedness Month 2021, we engaged subject-matter experts in the field of emergency management to have them weigh in on a few key areas. Our goal is to support increased visibility of EM as a profession (#MakeEMMoreVisible), not only for those who may be studying it at UIC, but also for those who may be considering entering the field.
