The goal of emergency planning is to get an organization back up and running in the event of an interruption in normal operations. Written emergency plans are a central tool used by departments and units within Oregon State University to address concerns, outline procedures and manage operational componants.
In order to effectively plan, at least 3 things must occur:
- Organize the plan
- Commit to policy and procedures within the plan
- Maintain the plan
Where to start
Begin your planning by contacting the office of emergency management. A representative will come to your department/unit and assist. Emergency management has tools and material to help.
