The university’s emergency management program is designed to maximize emergency preparedness, fortify community safety, preserve university property, restore normal operations in the event of an emergency, and provide responsive communications to all appropriate parties.
This program is also intended to ensure full compliance with applicable local, state, and federal life safety regulations and cooperation with relevant public agencies charged with disaster control.
The program includes general campus safety advisories; emergency communication systems; locations of all emergency telephones, automated external defibrillators and aid stations; and the Emergency Response Plan (ERP). The ERP provides the basic framework for the university's emergency response and incident command. It applies to all units of the university and may be activated in the event of campus, local, regional, or national emergencies.
