Keeping faculty, staff and students safe at a multitude of Indiana University campuses is quite an undertaking. But it all starts with education. So without spreading dread and doom, Safety Matters gathers and shares tips for encouraging a “culture of preparedness.” Do you know how to be warm and safe during snow, sleet and freezing rain (Hey, I’m right here and I hear you groaning about winter…), especially if you’re on the road? Can you live on water, peanut butter and crackers, and maybe a can of beans and a bag of chocolate chips, for three to seven days if the electricity goes out? And in this age of apps and IPods, do you have an plain old battery-operated radio around?
