About the Radio Loan Program

Virginia Tech Emergency Management has a small supply of two-way radios available for loan to groups within the Virginia Tech community.

Radios are available to groups hosting any size or type of event on campus, and they can be useful to coordinate communication between event organizers and staff. Radios can also be extremely useful in uniting communications between event staff in the case of an emergency.

Emergency Management can provide hands-on radio and emergency preparedness training to staff prior to the event. To request radio training, please contact Virginia Tech Emergency Management.

It is also recommended that event organizers develop a Special Event Emergency Plan (SEEP) prior to their event. For more information or assistance with a SEEP, please contact Virginia Tech Emergency Management.
