The Emergency Preparedness Program is dedicated to developing a disaster-resilient university by faciliting the coordination of planning activites necessary to build and improve the university's ability to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and continue operations during all types of natural, human-caused, or technological disasters. The ability to cope with minor emergencies and major disasters is accomplished through a variety of initiatives and programming including, but not limited to:
- Employing an integrated all-hazards, risk-based approach for mitigation, response, continuity of operations, recovery, and preparedness planning
- Developing emergency response plans that are integrated with the policies, procedures, and capabilities of our community partners in order to promote collaboration while responding to campus emergencies
- Conducting emergency exercises to test, evaluate, and improve response plans
- Supporting the utilization of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS) through annual training.
