Emergency Response & Management Plan
rev. Nov 2003
The basic emergency procedures outlined in this plan are designed to inform and prepare the EvCC faculty and staff for campus emergencies. The goal is to improve the ability of the college to protect lives and property through effective use of college and campus community resources in emergency situations. In the event of an emergency, procedures contained in this plan will be implemented as needed.
Whenever an emergency situation affecting the campus reaches proportions that cannot be handled by routine measures, the college President or designee may declare a state of emergency, and implement this plan at the appropriate level to mitigate the emergency.
This Emergency Response & Management Plan is purposely designed to be flexible to handle any unexpected emergency situation. Flexibility will allow the college to accommodate the individual magnitude of severity that each emergency may present.
These procedures apply to all employees of Everett Community College (EvCC) and tenants. Exception is given to those employees working at sites governed by other City, State or Federal agencies. Those employees are expected to follow direction and procedure as dictated by the specific site.
The Everett Community College Emergency Response & Management Plan (ERMP) is based on a realistic approach to problems likely to be encountered on campus during a major emergency or disaster. General assumptions are:
- An emergency or disaster may occur at any time day or night, weekday or weekend, with little or no warning.
- The succession of events in an emergency is not predictable. Support and operational plans serve only as guidelines and checklists, and may require modification in order to meet the specific nature of any particular major emergency or disaster.
- Disasters most likely will affect the availability of local, state, and federal services. Emergency services may not be available, and a delay in off campus emergency response and assistance may be expected up to 72 hours.
- Media contact will be routed through the college Public Information Officer (PIO) or as directed by the President, Incident Commander or designee.
- Key personnel may not be available or unable to carry out tasks and activities during an emergency.
