risdREADY Volunteers


risdREADY is a voluntary program that allows employees to be part of emergency preparedness and response on campus.

The Emergency Operations Command Team (EOCT) seeks to have one risdREADY volunteer from each area. risdREADY volunteers attend emergency preparedness training and act as points of reference for their fellow employees.

There is no expectation that volunteers will ever put themselves in danger! The purpose of the risdREADY program is to provide in-depth training to a group that can then bring the information back to their departments – making it possible to reach more members of our community. We want to empower and educate every person at RISD so that he or she can confidently handle whatever emergency situation arises. risdREADY volunteers help make that happen.
