1. Purpose

The basic emergency procedures outlined in this plan are to enhance the protection of lives and property through effective use of campus and community resources. Whenever an emergency affecting the campus reaches proportions THAT CANNOT BE HANDLED BY ROUTINE MEASURES, the President or his/her designee may declare a state of EMERGENCY, and these contingency guidelines may be implemented. There are two general types of emergencies that may require the implementation of this plan. These are: (1) large-scale disorder (riot, demonstration) and (2) large-scale disaster (utility, explosion, fire, weather related, etc). Since an emergency may be sudden and without warning, these procedures are designed to be flexible in order to accommodate contingencies of various types of magnitudes.
