Policy Provisions
1.

Emergency Command Post


When a major emergency occurs or is eminent, it will be the responsibility of the Emergency Director (aided by ESSC members and designees) to establish and staff an Emergency Command Post. If the emergency involves a large part of the campus, the Emergency Command Post is to be set up in the ground floor of Memorial Hall. If this site is unavailable, the Emergency Director is to select an alternate location. The Emergency Director or his/her designee and at least one ESSC member will staff the Command Post at all times until the emergency situation is over. An office with facilities for emergency teams which is able to accommodate multiple telephones is the most desirable location for the Emergency Command Post.
