MSU to hold preparedness exercise with emergency drill Thursday

MSU’s Crisis Action Team and local responders will participate in a preparedness exercise on campus Thursday [May 19]. The MSU campus community may notice emergency vehicles Thursday morning as part of a hypothetical scenario.

MSU’s Crisis Action Team conducts training exercises periodically to drill the emergency response skills of top administrators and key decision makers. This group meets regularly to ensure the university is prepared to respond to a variety of potential threats to the campus community. The most common types of threats include inclement weather incidents, but the team trains for a wide variety of other potential emergency scenarios.

The Crisis Action Team advises all MSU students, faculty and staff to periodically update Maroon Alert contact information and opt in to receive Maroon Alert text messages. For more information about Maroon Alert and registration instructions, visit Follow @MaroonAlert on Twitter.
