The university employs several types of plans to support emergency preparedness and the university's response to emergencies.
Departmental Emergency/Preparedness Plans
Building Emergency Action Plans
Building specific plans are designed to help occupants better prepare to respond to an emergency that may occur in their building. Evacuation plans and Lockdown plans have been developed for campus buildings defining expected roles of individuals, how occupants will be alerted to the emergency, and where they should go during an emergency. For more information regarding building emergency plans, contact your departmental safety representative.
Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP)
The departmental Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) guides departments in the continued provision of critical operations and the reestablishment of business functions during and after a disaster occurs. COOP planning is a critical piece of overall emergency management.
University Emergency/Preparedness Plans
Hazard Mitigation Plan
The East Carolina University Hazard Mitigation Plan identifies hazards that may affect the university and assesses vulnerability of critical university facilities. Mitigation strategies have been developed and prioritized to address vulnerabilities identified in the plan.
University Continuity of Operations Plan
The university-level Continuity of Operations Plan (Primary COOP) is designed to facilitate the continued provision of university essential functions following a major emergency. The Primary COOP addresses overarching objectives for the university and departmental COOP plans address specific functions and procedures.
Emergency Operations Plan
The Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is an all-hazards response plan used to guide the management of any emergency that affects the university. The EOP identifies the university's concept of emergency operations and relies on various internal and external entities to successfully manage an emergency.
