Emergency Planning develops, implements, and continuously improves a comprehensive campus emergency management program.

The program is based on fire and occupational health and safety regulations and standards, California Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS), National Incident Management System (NIMS), the Clery Act, and accepted emergency planning and management professional practices, operating under the umbrella of the campus Emergency Operations Plan (EOP).

Overall Goals:

  • Evolve and adapt current practices to keep with industry standards.
  • Build a working culture of resiliency and readiness across the University.
  • Partner with key stakeholders to build a foundation of expertise for response and recovery.
  • Ensure that known hazards are mitigated as best as possible prior to an emergency occurring.
  • Ensure plans and assets are in place to effectively respond to emergencies on campus.
  • Ensure timely response to emergencies impacting the health and safety of the campus community.
  • Ensure effective and efficient recovery after an emergency.
