Be ready, be safe

The Personal Action Plan is a tool for individuals with access or functional needs to prepare for emergencies and have quick access to safety information. Individuals may choose to self-disclose and share their plan with emergency responders to enable them to provide assistance during an emergency. Individuals are encouraged to review the Building Emergency Plan for applicable buildings before completing their Personal Action Plan.
