Collect and analyze information to support decision-making and incident action plans Manage College resources effectively in the emergency response and recovery periods Restore general College operations, facilities, and academic programs Cooperate with other agencies RISK MANAGEMENT POLICY STATEMENT For humanitarian, social, legal, and financial reasons, Linfield College will make every reasonable effort to protect the health and safety of members of its own community and guests of the College from hazards incidental to operations of the College. We strive to protect people and to preserve the resources of the College from harm or losses, thereby enabling the College to educate for lives of thoughtful inquiry, service, leadership, and care. It is the responsibility of all members of our community to conduct themselves in a manner that will not cause personal injury or damage to College facilities. SCOPE The Linfield College All Hazards Emergency Operations Plan guides preparedness, response and recovery actions. It may be activated during a broad range of emergency incidents. Most these incidents could require a response at a Level 1, 2 or 3 depending on the severity of the situation. The types of incidents include, but are not limited to: Earthquakes Hazardous Materials Release Violent Incidents or Imminent Threats Atmospheric Contamination Social Unrest Terrorism Flooding International Crisis Affecting Students or Employees Utility Disruption Mass Casualty Incidents Fires and Explosions Weather or Storm Incidents Traumatic Incidents Technological Incidents 7

Structural Failures Airplane Crash Bombs Pandemic Illnesses The All Hazards Emergency Operations Plan may also be activated during a community or regional crisis that may affect the College personnel or business operations indirectly. ASSUMPTIONS The assumptions upon which this EOP is predicated are outlined below: The College will continue to be exposed to the hazards noted above, as well as others that may develop in the future. Outside assistance will be available in most emergency situations affecting the College campus. Although this plan defines procedures for coordinating such assistance, it is essential for the College to be prepared to carry out disaster response and short-term actions on an independent basis. It is possible for a major disaster to occur at any time and at any place on the College campus. In some cases, dissemination of warning and increased readiness measures may be possible. However, many disasters and events can occur with little or no warning. Although the campus does not have sworn Law Enforcement officers or a Fire Department, campus officials recognize their responsibilities for the safety and well-being of students, staff and the public and will assume their responsibilities in the implementation of this emergency plan.

    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.
