This specific exercise will allow University employees, students, and departments to participate and demonstrate their response to a potential emergency event.

UPD encourages all faculty, staff, and students to review standard response and evacuation protocols in the JSU Emergency Operations Plan at http://www.jsu.edu/police/docs/jsueop.pdf.
