Be Prepared for Emergencies at Home
Emergencies that affect us at work can also affect us at home. Even if your family is not directly affected by a disaster, you may be asked to work longer hours or called in to work if a disaster affects the Vanderbilt campus. Make sure that your family is taken care of by developing a home emergency response plan.
