Emergency Response-Environmental Health & Safety - Carnegie Mellon University

Emergency Response

Carnegie Mellon University’s Emergency Operations Program is designed to maximize human safety and preserve property, minimize danger, restore normal operations of the university, and assure responsive communication to all appropriate parties. This Program is also intended to ensure compliance with applicable local, state, and federal regulations and cooperation with relevant public bodies charged with disaster control.

Within this program are safety advisories for the general campus, the university’s formal Emergency Operations Plan, the emergency communication system, the locations of all emergency telephones and Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), and information for Floor Marshals.

The Emergency Operations Plan may be activated in the event of local, regional, or national emergencies. It applies to all units of the university and provides the basic framework for critical incident preparedness.
