Be Prepared as You Start a New Year!

The Office of Emergency Management would like to welcome you to NOVA or welcome you back if you are a returning student!  We want you to be safe and prepared for any emergency that may happen while here at NOVA.  We encourage you to take a few minutes during your first weeks on campus to look around for the nearest exits to your classrooms in case of a fire or other emergency evacuation.  Also, look for the nearest Severe Weather Shelter location to your classroom in case there is a tornado or an especially severe storm.  These locations are marked by a green sign with a picture of a tornado.  Each classroom also has an Emergency Procedures poster.  Take a look at this as well as it describes what to do in just about any emergency situation you may encounter while on campus.
