Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness is essential for the University and is a part of the responsibilities of the Director of Environmental & Occupational Safety.  Emergency Preparedness includes assessment of the likelihood of various types of emergencies, development of response procedures, and education for the campus community.  Although the Emergency Quick Reference Guide included here has response guidelines for many different types of emergencies, exact responses will be determined by the needs of the specific situation.
