Campus Emergency Management and Planning

Emergency management is the managerial function charged with creating the framework within which communities reduce vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters.

The Office of Emergency Management protects campus by coordinating and integrating activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man-made disasters.

Campus Emergency Operations Plan

The campus emergency management plan is available on SharePoint for anyone with a UT Knoxville NetID and password.

Hazard Mitigation Plan Public Comment Opportunities

The Office of Emergency Management maintains a Hazard Mitigation Plan which is updated every years. The plan is posted on SharePoint for any campus community member to review.

More Information on the Planning Process

A hazard mitigation plan is the result of a planning process which identifies policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce the risk and future losses resulting from hazard events. The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Disaster Resistant University Plan addresses a comprehensive list of both natural and man-made hazards likely to impact the University.
