Emergency Procedures

There are always unique situations that arise while hosting international students. The situation may be a new incident, a student reacting in an unusual way, or something else entirely. The Homestay Program is here to support hosts as new situations occur. If hosts are ever uncertain about a situation, want to run an idea by someone, or talk through an experience, they are encouraged to contact the Homestay Program staff. Hosts are encouraged to read through Appendix B- Homestay Incident Communication Protocol in the Hosting Experience Manual,  regarding emergency procedures and important numbers on pages 29-34.
