Be prepared - http://www.ready.gov/america/getakit/index.html

You may need to survive on your own after an emergency. This means having your own food, water, and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least three days. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours, or it might take days. In addition, basic services such as electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment, and telephones may be cut off for days, or even a week or longer.

Optional Benefit Program

Faculty & Staff benefits now include savings on auto and home insurance! The University of Houston has teamed up with Liberty Mutual to offer our employees the Liberty Mutual AdvantageTM.  This unique program allows you to purchase high-quality auto, home and renters insurance at competitive rates through the convenience of automatic checking account deductions or direct bill.  It provides personalized one on one counseling and a battery of extra value services.  Watch for announcements of educational seminars coming to campus soon.
