CSM Ready


csm ready logo

The safety of the College of Southern Maryland community during an emergency is predicated on advance planning, as well as on building awareness about how the plans will be implemented. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors will be better prepared in an emergency if they know how the college will respond, where they can find information, and what they should do.

Key to that awareness is good communication. This site contains essential tools for sharing plans and providing relevant information in case an emergency arises at the College of Southern Maryland or in the surrounding area.
