Building Emergency Preparedness Coordinators

The Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Program is an effort to connect the campus emergency planning and response with the campus community. The goal is to train some people in basic emergency response actions who know the building and occupants and can act as a resource and liaison to the students, faculty, and staff who frequent that facility.

The two most basic responses are to shelter or evacuate. Each building has designated shelter areas and evacuation assembly points that are listed on building signs, summarized in the Building Evac & Shelter List.
