What Does the Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response Do?

The Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response leads mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery efforts in collaboration with campus and community partners in order to cultivate a disaster resilient University.

Emergency Notification System

In the event of a campus emergency, the Emergency Notification System will be activated. The first priority of the University is to respond to the incident, direct members of the campus community to the appropriate action (whether shelter-in-place, evacuation, or other action), and then to keep members of the campus community, parents, neighbors, and the public informed.

  • Emergency Notification System

What's that alarm?

The alarm boxes on campus allow University Police to communicate directly through audible voice instructions. If the Fire light is flashing, evacuate. If the Alert light is flashing, listen for instructions.
