Do you know what to do in the event of an emergency? Do you know where to get information or how to get in contact with friends and family? It's important to think about these questions before an emergency, and have a personal preparedness plan.

Personal preparedness is as easy as one, two, three. The guide and checklist below will help you enhance your personal preparedness in the event of an emergency.

If you'd like to ask questions about personal emergency preparedness and disability/accessibility please contact emergencymanagement@nyu.edu to initiate a meeting with one of our team members.

To assemble your kit, store items in airtight plastic bags and put your entire kit in one or two easy-to-carry containers such as plastic bins or a duffel bag. Keep in mind that everyone’s emergency kit will be a little different. Think about your specific needs while developing your list of items.
