University Emergency Operations Plan - Basic Plan


Higher education institutions across the United States have recognized the importance of comprehensive all-hazard planning in response to both incidents and federal mandates. Emergency management is an evolving field that now recognizes the unique vulnerabilities present on college campuses. Appalachian State University provides this Emergency Operations Plan as a guidance document for all-hazard emergency management. This document is established to replace the former University Emergency Response Plan. While similarities between the two plans exist, this Plan considers emergency functions, numerous hazards, and a heightened role of the Emergency Operations Center in response to major emergencies and disasters.
