Dear Lisa:

This prof is in Florida as a temporary FEMA person.  We are working as
community relations specialists and are getting folks registered for FEMA

As to the schools, you should have evacuation plans, shelter locations
worked out, and have emergency supplies set aside to provide for the
students living on campus.  Perhaps you might consider setting up a
university CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) at the University.  I
know that George Mason University in Fairfax, VA has a CERT team to deal
with emergencies.  If you want more information, let me know and I will
follow up when (if) I return from Florida.  I think all universities should
set up their own CERT team that can respond to any type of emergency when
the first responders are unable to cover a wide-spread emergency such as
tornados or hurricanes, or manmade events.

After surviving two hurricanes and potentially facing a third, I am curious
about what other Colleges and Universities do in this situation.
Specifically in terms of evacuations and staffing.
