To educate the campus about being prepared for and staying safe during an emergency, and help students build an emergency preparedness kit, HSU is hosting the Bigfoot Zombie Apocalypse Scavenger Hunt on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The scavenger hunt begins on the Quad, where students will be given a map leading them to seven campus departments and offices. Each will highlight their services and resources and hand out preparedness-related gear such as a solar lantern, paracord bracelet, and water purification tablets. (Please note items are limited and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis).
“We all understand the importance of being prepared for emergencies,” says Cris Koczera, HSU’s Emergency Management Coordinator. “But we’re hoping the scavenger hunt reinforces that point in a concrete way and, at the same time, help students build a preparedness kit.”
Koczera says students will receive safety information, plus suggestions on apps for updates on weather and ocean conditions, and emergencies, including:
NOAA Weather Radar: Rain forecast and storm alerts.
Rave Guardian: HSU students can send automatic alerts to friends and family in case of an emergency, report anonymous tips, and call 911.
Red Cross: Disaster and emergency updates.
