Campus Emergency Planning

Campus Emergency Management Plan

The campus emergency management plan is available on SharePoint for anyone with a UT Knoxville NetID and password.

Hazard Mitigation Plan Public Comment Opportunities

The campus was recently awarded a FEMA grant to update its Hazard Mitigation Plan.  The campus community has an opportunity to provide valuable input to assist the planning team to accurately identify hazards and strategies for mitigating the impact of an incident.  We had over 2000 respondents to our survey to collect public input on the potential campus hazards.  This feedback was incorporated into the plan. The complete Hazard Mitigation Plan is now being distributed for public comment.  The plan is posted on SharePoint for your review. Click this link and provide your NetID and password to access the site.  Use this form to provide feedback feedback_utk_hazard_mitigation or stop by the public comment drop-in session at Fred Brown Dorm multi-purpose room between 1 – 4 p.m. on the 26th of September to discuss the plan in person.

More Information on the Planning Process

A hazard mitigation plan is the result of a planning process which identifies policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce the risk and future HazMit Plan Graphiclosses resulting from hazard events. The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Disaster Resistant University Plan will address a comprehensive list of both natural and man-made hazards likely to impact the University. The planning process is structured around four phases:

Phase 1: Organize Resources; Phase 2: Assess Risks; Phase 3: Develop a Mitigation Plan; and Phase 4: Implement the Plan and Monitor Progress. These four phases are further broken down into 10 steps, shown in the figure.
