The Emergency Management Bureau of the University of Houston Department of Public Safety, is primarily responsible to enhance and improve the university's preparedness for emergency, disasters and crisis incidents and to coordinate emergency response to these incidents. The UH Emergency Management Bureau supports our campus community of staff, faculty, and students to ensure that we work together to build, sustain, and improve our incident management capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate from all hazards.

The Bureau works closely with all university departments, directs the Emergency Management Team, and is responsible for managing university-wide emergency operations center, preparedness and outreach programs, campus wide business continuity planning, including management of the university's Emergency Management Plan, technical assistance and training related to incident and site-specific response planning, continual impact analysis and planning, assessment of response efforts, and support training for emergency response and business continuity planning to the university community.
