Per the executive order and coded memo, the campus is to develop, review and update an emergency operations plan and distribute it to emergency management team members and others, as identified by the campus.
The EOP shall be continually communicated to the campus community in a variety of methods through public education.
What is an Emergency Operations Plan?
An emergency operations plan is a document that outlines how our campus will respond in an emergency.
- The EOP sets guidelines to manage a disaster in an effective, and timely manner.
- The EOP typically calls for the establishment of the Incident Command System (ICS).
- An emergency operations plan is typically activated, on an as-needed basis and is designed to be used for all types of emergency scenarios (earthquake, fire, lock-down, shelter-in-place and hazardous materials spill incidents).
How does the Emergency Operations Plan affect me as an employee or student on campus?
The best way to prepare your emergency response is to have a plan in advance, be familiar with the contents of the plan and practice designated actions that can ensure your safety.
We have a new EOP. Now what?
The Department of Emergency Management, within the Office of Institutional Risk, is in the process of rolling out a multi-phased approach. It includes:
- Training the campus, students, faculty, staff and administrators on the EOP contents and how to better prepare for an emergency.
- Conducting tabletop exercises with the campus, executives and administrators on how to coordinate and effectively respond in an emergency/catastrophic event.
- Providing targeted training to our campus to better prepare for an emergency. This includes training volunteer first responders, such as building marshals and floor captains in search and rescue, as well as general training for campus community members on triage, first aid and sheltering operations.
