Featuring how-to tutorials of UIC safety tools; educational videos, interactive maps and more, we urge you to explore the report and its resources.

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!
