We welcome you to become part of the TUready community here at Temple! Join us in our effort to build a culture of preparedness and a disaster resilient university.
The Building Emergency Management Team (BEMT) is a critical force of staff, faculty, and students who guide the community during emergency procedures. Anyone can become part of the BEMT, and we host events such as special skills training, social events, and an annual banquet to develop relationships and enhance collaboration.
Our TU Volunteer Response Corps (TUVRC) is intrinsically important to emergency operations, such as an activation for mass sheltering, mass medical distribution, and disaster mental health outreach. The TUVRC includes skills of all kinds, including public health and psychological first aid responders, and we welcome faculty, staff, and students to join the ranks.
Other opportunities to get involved with the TUready community at Temple include volunteering for preparedness events, such as the TUready Fair or Resilience Fair, being part of emergency functional exercises - including active assailant scenarios and public health emergency simulations, and joining in on other special sessions.
