Emergency Operations Center

The Emergency Operations Center is the main control center of the Public Safety/University Police Department during a critical incident.

Emergencies can arise at any time and from various natural or manmade causes. The best way to minimize potential loss and speed up the process of recovery from natural or man-made disasters is to plan ahead.

As a result, the University revised the campus Emergency Management Plan, created an Emergency Operations Center, and organized an Emergency Management Team. The team is trained to evaluate and respond to major emergency situations using the Incident Command System (ICS). ICS ensures effective management of the people, organizations, and resources utilized in response to emergencies.
