Department Emergency Plans

Preparing for emergencies on campus is a shared responsibility among PSU departments/units and individual employees and students. Departments/units can prepare for a variety of emergencies by developing a department/unit emergency response plan. A department/unit emergency response plan identifies a department/unit’s specific approach to emergencies and is meant to compliment the overall campus level Emergency Operations Plan.

Departments/units across the university should prepare for emergencies and operational disruptions from all-hazards as incidents can occur at any time and without notice.  Preparedness activities are important at all levels of the university because they have the potential to save lives, reduce property damage, protect the environment and enhance the university’s ability to effectively respond to and recover from disruptive incidents.
