About Us

The office of Emergency Preparedness implements programs and projects in emergency and disaster planning, training, mitigation, response, and recovery. The mission of the office of Emergency Preparedness is to create a comprehensive emergency management program for the university in order to save lives, protect property, promote continuity of operations, and reduce the overall effects of large-scale disasters. In addition to planning for the entire campus, the office works with individual departments to develop unit-based emergency plans. The office also acts as the primary liaison between the university and outside government emergency management agencies.
