The result of having an emergency plan is the protection of lives and property while improving the response process.  Emergency planning is a cycle of planning, training, exercising, and revising the plan.  OSU uses written emergency plans as a central tool for Colleges, Departments, and work units to address concerns, outline procedures and manage operational components.

An effective planning process includes:

  1. Understanding the situation – hazards and capabilities
  2. Developing the plan
  3. Review and approve the plan
  4. Implementing and maintaining the plan

Where to start

To assist with your planning efforts, contact the OSU Emergency Management Office.  A template has been developed for Colleges, Departments, and Work Units to guide the development of their plan.
