PURPOSE OF THIS POLICY

Colorado State University has an emergency response plan to prepare the campus community to cope with hazards that may affect safety, health, and campus operations. The plan describes the concept of operations for response to emergencies and delineates the roles and responsibilities of departments, divisions, and agencies that are expected to help protect life and property on campus. It also describes how the University is organized to reduce or eliminate threats to life and property.

POLICY STATEMENT

Major campus emergencies will be coordinated from an Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC will oversee and support field operations. Strategic decisions will be made with advice from the Public Safety Team (PST).

For further information, see the Public Safety website and the Environmental Health Services/Risk Management & Insurance emergency response page.

IN AN EMERGENCY, DIAL 911.
