Departmental Responsibility A crisis or emergency can strike anytime or anywhere and may affect part of or the entire campus community. Planning ahead for emergencies is part of normal business planning and campus life, and all members of the campus community share a responsibility for preparedness. Therefore: Facilities, ITS, College Public Safety, Residential Life, Dining Services, and School of Nursing are expected to maintain a departmental Emergency Response and Continuity Plan to protect personnel and programs, and to support campus emergency response and recovery. College leaders including Vice Presidents, Directors, and faculty officers should encourage departmental coordination to develop departmental plans that are consistent with College policies, plans, and procedures. All departments should maintain contact information for their employees. Each department is responsible for sharing information and recalling personnel, as necessary. Each department is responsible for identifying essential personnel before an incident occurs. Personal Responsibility All employees have a personal responsibility for knowing what to do before, during, and after an emergency to protect their safety and work. 10

RESPONSE Concept of Operations This plan is designed as a flexible system in which part or the entire plan may be activated, as appropriate to the incident, emergency, or disaster. It is a management tool that provides an overall organization and general procedures for the management of information, activities, and operations during an emergency. When to Activate Response Plan Most actions in this plan are activated when emergency conditions exist, or are predicted, in which normal operations are interrupted and immediate action and coordination is required to: Save and protect lives Containment or Control the Incident Prevent damage to the environment, systems and property Manage communications and information Collect and analyze information Manage College resources effectively Activate and staff the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Restore College operations, facilities, and academic programs Cooperate with other agencies to assist others DELEGATION OF AUTHORITY/LINE OF SUCCESSION In the absence of the College President, or his designee, will have overall command during an emergency.

    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.
