Campus Emergency Operations Plan - rev 2016

The campus Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is intended to identify the roles, responsibilities, and actions required of campus departments and divisions in preparing for and responding to emergencies and disasters. The plan helps ensure a coordinated response by the campus in managing emergencies and disasters, save lives, prevent injuries, and protect property and the environment. The EOP is not meant to replace individual department or division standard operating procedures, but rather to serve as a framework from which to draw when a situation overwhelms the capabilities of a single department or division.

Training and Planning Resources
The Department of Public Safety, including Emergency Management, provides training and planning support for a variety of topics each year. If you are interested in an opportunity for your department, class, or student group, please contact us at 255.3106 or via email at to determine how we can best support you in becoming more prepared for emergencies. Here are just a few examples of common topics we provide training and/or planning for:

  • Department Emergency Action Plans
  • Evacuations and Shelter-In-Place
  • Fire Extinguisher Use
  • Dealing With Difficult People
  • Personal Preparedness Planning
  • Continuity Of Operations Planning

Floor Safety Liaisons
The Floor Safety Liaison program is comprised of volunteers across campus who serve as a point of contact to Emergency Management for their building and/or floor. Floor Safety Liaisons assist us in maintaining a basic emergency plan and contact information for their respective departments or areas. Many Floor Safety Liaisons also serve on the Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee (EPAC), but this is not a requirement to participate in this volunteer opportunity.

If you would like more information on this program, more information on the Floor Safety Liaison for your building/floor, or would like to volunteer as a Floor Safety Liaison, please contact us at 255.3288 or via email at
