The Emergency Management Plan
The Emergency Management Plan, also known as the EMP, is a campus-wide plan that provides the basic framework and outlines how any emergency would be managed on the University of Houston campus. It describes the roles, responsibilities and procedures for departments, units, faculty, staff and students during any incident.
This EMP is an “All-Hazards Approach” plan which provides broad guidelines for emergency management with specific emergency management functions. The basic emergency management procedures given here are designed to protect lives and property through an effective use of campus and community resources. Since an incident may happen suddenly and without warning, the procedures in the EMP are designed to be flexible to accommodate contingencies of various types and magnitudes.
