The theme of the day was preparation.

Mississippi State University’s Maroon Volunteer Center and its Campus-Community Emergency Response Team (C-CERT) hosted Personal Readiness and Emergency Preparation (P.R.E.P.) Day on Thursday as a part of Emergency Preparedness Week, educating attendants on the necessary measures that should be taken to be ready for natural disasters and offering numerous activities and workshops for campus and community members to learn how to be prepared for crisis situations.
