Emergency Preparedness

Be Prepared, Be PennReady!

Emergency preparedness at the University of Pennsylvania is managed under the PennReady program. Being PennReady means to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from any and all emergencies that could affect the Penn and University City communities. It also means:

  • having a comprehensive plan to prevent situations that cause emergencies
  • preparing personnel on the procedures to follow should a crisis occur
  • having a well collaborated response approach from University officials and City, State and Federal agencies to effectively mitigate any crisis
  • being ready and able to recover quickly from emergency events to keep the mission of Penn actively moving forward

We at the Division of Public Safety implore all members of the Penn community to take an active role in the emergency preparedness initiative of the University. Be involved!

Reach out to DPS to:

  • become a PennReady team member
  • install AEDs in your building
  • ensure your building has an emergency plan
  • partner with DPS through educational presentations and drills
