Safety and Emergency Management provides guidance and services to all departments in order to promote compliance with local, state, and federal regulations governing hazardous materials, occupational safety, indoor air quality, fire safety, and radiation safety.
Safety and Emergency Management work with all stakeholders of the University to provide a comprehensive emergency management program for the purpose of life safety, property conservation, and continuity of operations.
Safety and Emergency Management, in conjunction with our on and off-campus partners, provides information about communications and basic safety procedures to use in the event of an emergency that threatens public safety.
Such emergencies may include severe weather conditions, major power failures, fires and explosions, transportation accidents, other accidents involving mass casualties, release of hazardous materials, violent crimes, civil disorder, bomb threats, public health emergencies, and acts of terrorism.
These emergencies can pose significant threats to life and property. For information on what to do during such emergencies refer to the Emergency Action Plan or contact Safety and Emergency Management at (859) 572-6528.
