Extended Power Outage Emergency Response Procedures

Due to the nature of the campus, and the reliance on electrical power to maintain operations, loss of power for several hours or to several buildings could result in an emergency situation.  Decisions related to continued operation, relocation of operations, or closure would require implementation of the emergency plan.  The extent of the emergency would depend on the extent of the outage, time of day, and the academic calendar.  Members of the Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee are developing procedures to address related procedures.
