National Preparedness Month – September 2011

The following is extracted from an email message sent by the Provost, Paul Ludden, and the VP for Business and Finance, Chris Casey to faculty and staff.  President Turner supports this effort by SMU which has been themed “A Time to Remember, A Time to Prepare”.

September marks the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks on the United States and, as such, it has been proclaimed National Preparedness Month by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.  President Turner supports this effort, themed as “A Time to Remember, A Time to Prepare,” to reflect on the importance of strengthening the security and safety of our campus community.

Following are the two documents, prepared by the SMU Office of Risk Management, which were attached to the email messages:

HR joins our campus leaders in encouraging our University community to be aware of the policies and procedures in place to ensure we meet our goal of providing a safe and healthy campus environment for all.
In addition, SMU has created procedures and policy for recognizing and reporting  Workplace Violence.  We encourage you to take a moment to view this webpage and familiarize yourself with  the opportunities available to the campus community to recognize and report any violations or emerging threats.
