Emergency preparedness

Emergency preparedness is everyone’s responsibility. By familiarizing yourself with the University of Waterloo's emergency plans and policies you can be prepared to react when an emergency arises.

The University of Waterloo is actively facilitating the coordination and integration of all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the University’s ability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, continue operations during, and recover from natural disasters or human-caused crises or disasters.
