Do you know the difference between a tornado watch and a warning? How do you respond to either announcement? Do you need to apply for a tent or bonfire permit for use on George Mason property? What if you had a fender-bender in a state vehicle and need copies of the required insurance forms? Are you running a summer camp and need to determine your professional and personal liability? All of that information and much more can be found on the Safety Office’s new web site at www.gmu.edu/safety.

While some areas are still under construction and more will be added in the months ahead, many currently useful facts, policies, and procedures are available online now. Also, many forms and applications are provided in both Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat formats for customers to download and use. While at the site, users can also check out the Fire Safety Plan, helpful tips on office safety, and drafts of the Emergency Response Plan and Emergency Action Guide. Users can also offer suggestions on other documents being developed to codify the safety functions at George Mason.
