Emergency Action Guide
In most incidents local police, medical and/or fire personnel may respond within a short period of time, however there are circumstances in which they may not be able to immediately respond to campus and building sites. Therefore, department faculty, staff, and students must be prepared to ensure their safety during the first several minutes or hours(if a catastrophic event occurs) after an incident without some form of assistance. It is critical to determine who does what, when, where, and how before and during an incident. Prior to a campus emergency the department head will either be responsible for, or designate an individual or essential personnel to maintain department/college functions as applicable. In the event of a declaration of a campus emergency, as designated by the Office of the President, the department head of a business unit or department may designate and assign essential staff to the support emergency operations of the University.
