Planning for emergencies requires an integrated approach to the management of programs and activities for all four phases of Emergency Management (preparedness, response, recovery, mitigation) and all types of emergencies and disasters (both natural and man-made).
As defined in the Chancellor’s Office Executive Order No. 1013, the purpose of the executive order is to maintain an emergency management program on each campus that will be activated when a hazardous condition or natural disaster reaches or has the potential for reaching proportions beyond the capacity of routine operations.
This executive order supersedes and modifies Executive Order No. 921 to adopt the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and incorporate revisions to further define the responsibilities and needs of an effective campus emergency management program.
