Emergency Procedures

This Emergency Procedures Guide has been designed to provide a basic contingency manual for the University Administration in order to plan for campus emergencies. While this guide does not cover every conceivable situation, it does supply the basic administrative structure and guidelines necessary to cope with most campus emergencies.

Campus emergency operations will be conducted within the framework of existing University guidelines. Any exceptions to these crisis management procedures will be conducted by, or with the approval of, those University Administrators directing and/or coordinating the emergency operations.

All requests for procedural changes, suggestions, or recommendations will be submitted in writing to the Director of Public Safety for review who will in turn submit it to the Campus Emergency Preparedness Committee. All changes recommended by the Committee will be submitted in writing to Administration for evaluation and adoption.
