The UNCG Office of Emergency Management maintains several emergency management related plans to ensure the university can continue to fulfill its mission in the event of a disaster. Below are the major plans that guide the Emergency Management Program at UNCG.
The Office of Emergency Management is in the process of updating the University’s Hazard Mitigation Plan to identify the hazards that most adversely impact the University and to identify mitigation projects to lessen the impact of these hazards on the University. At the conclusion of the plan update, UNC Greensboro will have a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) compliant hazard mitigation plan that will allow UNC Greensboro to be eligible for federal mitigation grant funding.
The Office of Emergency Management maintains and oversees an All-hazards Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) for the University. This plan was developed by the Emergency Planning and Response Team (EPART) to cover a multitude of hazards and disasters. The plan directs the University’s response to emergencies and disasters by providing guidance, assistance, and relief as necessary to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from the effects of a major emergency or disaster. The team is chaired by the Emergency Management Director and is trained to respond to significant campus emergencies. The team meets quarterly to address planning concerns.
The purpose of the strategic plan is to systematically delineate the strategic goals of the UNCG Emergency Management Program and set forth an implementation schedule to achieve the goals.
A building emergency action plan (BEAP) is a plan to address life safety concerns during an emergency for a specific building. Essential components of the plan include instructions for personal protective actions such as evacuating and sheltering-in-place, contacting emergency responders, and following basic emergency procedures.
Each business unit that is determined by the university to provide essential functions shall maintain a Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP). This plan reflects sufficient forethought and detail to ensure timely restoration of essential functions following an incident.
The Office of Emergency Management is in the process of developing a university-wide recovery plan that will address how the University will recover from a major emergency or disaster. The plan establishes both short- and long-term priorities goals and objectives.
