Action which may need to be taken during an emergency or major incident. Action which may need to be taken following an emergency. Although attention has been given, it is likely that these lists, while lengthy, are not complete. In some cases, action which might normally fall within the authority of one area has been inadvertently assigned to another area. Team members should strive for fluidity and flexibility when developing area plans. Please review how your might create Version Updated September 2017 21

back-up and balance of responsibilities during an emergency, within your area and with other areas. Instructions for developing Area Response Plans Willamette develops initial phase job descriptions for the senior leaders of the University who will function as an Emergency Response Team. These job descriptions help determine the scope and nature of the activity of the Emergency Response Team for responding to emergency. It also serves to outline activities which would need to take place in the many areas comprising the University in the event of an emergency. Although we are a small University, the campus is large and complex enough that events can happen in one area without affecting another area. There are some events, however, such as earthquakes, severe weather conditions, flooding and hazardous material spills which can affect the operation and safety of the entire campus. Events for which response plan action lists are developed in support include the following: Student Death, accidental Student death, suicide Student death, homicide Fire: single/multiple structures Flood Earthquake Bomb threat Hazmat incident Train Derailment Airplane Crash Weather Multiple injury event We do not expect you to develop a specific emergency response plan for each of these possible events. We desire a framework of desirable actions which would need to occur if your area were called upon to respond to an emergency. The framework should include the activities your area would mobilize to provide assistance in an emergency elsewhere on campus. Area Response Plans will be included in the University’s overall plan which will, in turn, serve as a guide for the Emergency Response Team in its efforts to coordinate University- wide emergency planning and response.

Some guidance for developing Area Response Plans In the event the person normally in charge is not available, who is next in charge? Who is in charge after that? What are the tasks which would need to be carried out if an emergency were to occur in your area, and who is assigned to carry out each task? List the tasks so that the most important appear first. Keep in mind that, in an extreme emergency, the tasks might need to be carried out by someone outside your area, so be as clear as possible.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
