Emergency Preparedness

Emergencies can arise at any time, from unforeseen causes. It is important that you are prepared in case of any emergency, and that you are aware of the different kinds of emergencies that can occur on a research campus like CU-Boulder.

  • Fire, Gas Leak, Chemical Spill – In a dry climate like ours, fire is an any-season possibility.
  • Flood, Snowstorm, High Winds– Boulder has a high risk for severe flooding, and heavy snowfall can create a variety of hazardous situations.
  • Medical Assistance – If another person ever needs your help, be sure you know what to do to get the medical attention required.
