NinerReady Overview

At UNC Charlotte we believe emergency preparedness starts at the individual level.  This includes being prepared for any emergency situation before it happens.  Being prepared is good practice for any emergency you may face whether at school, work or a large event.  In order to help students, faculty, staff, and visitors be prepared for any type of emergency, the UNC Charlotte Office of Emergency Management created the NinerReady program.  Being NinerReady is more than just a program, it's a lifestyle.  What does being NinerReady mean?  It's simple, understand how/where to get emergency information, ensure you're connected to receive emergency alerts via multiple methods, and finally, understand the action you should take for different types of emergencies.  That's it! Follow those steps and you are on your way to becoming NinerReady.
