The University’s Emergency Management Plan (EMP) is the result of the efforts of the Emergency Management Team. The Team was appointed by the President's Office to examine the emergency preparedness on the campus of Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
The goals of the Team are as follows::
To coordinate the university's response to emergencies involving students while paying special attention to the safety and security needs of all members of the university community;
To offer counseling, guidance, and appropriate support to members of the university community and their families;
To use emergencies, when appropriate, as teachable experiences to enhance the quality of life for all those touched by an emergency.
The Team will make every effort to accomplish these goals when dealing with an emergency situation on campus.

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) developed the Ready or Not? public education campaign to help people begin to prepare themselves and their family for any emergency. DSHS is making all campaign materials (available at www.TexasPrepares.org) available to continue the preparedness effort.
The Ready or Not? campaign focuses on raising public awareness and promoting personal and family preparedness. The campaign is also designed to trigger communication among family and friends about what it takes to be prepared for any emergency situation. Key messaging is designed around three easy to remember components:
Talk about your emergency plan with your family. Know where your family will meet if you have to evacuate and when it’s important for your family to stay put. Include in your family plan elderly neighbors and people with disabilities who need someone to look out for them. Also remember your pets.
Make a shopping list for items you don’t already have, and store all essentials in one place. Essentials include at least a three-day supply of water and nonperishable food, among other items. A website developed by DSHS, www.TexasPrepares.org (www.TexasPrepara.org in Spanish), walks you through a complete emergency supply checklist and helps you prepare a customized list of essentials.
Know how you will receive information in an emergency. Make sure important documents, or copies, are gathered in a safe, accessible place. Those documents include identification cards, insurance policies, lists of medications, and important phone numbers. Have a battery-operated radio on hand.
