It is imperative that our community members feel comfortable with their knowledge of what to do in case there is a fire or other emergency.  The first step of this training process for everyone is to review the Emergency Preparedness Presentation (Atlas Course Number: EHS 404) for an introduction to AeroAstro Emergency Preparedness and General Safety guidelines. All members of the AeroAstro Community will be required to watch this presentation prior to receiving access to general areas. If you have any questions about your training, please contact either your EHS rep or your EHS Coordinators

Required for all AeroAstro Community Members:
