Emergency Management

The Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) has responsibility for emergency management at East Carolina University.  The office is charged with protecting the university's mission of instruction, healthcare, research, and outreach through emergency planning and preparedness at all levels of the university.  The office bases this mission on the principles of emergency management:

  • Mitigation:  Reduce the loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters.
  • Preparedness:  Reduce the impact of an emergency on people through education, planning, and training ;
  • Response:  Save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs after an incident occurred.
  • Recovery:  Assist the campus community and those affected by an incident to recover effectively, including, but not limited to rebuilding infrastructure, providing interim or long-term shelter, restoring services, and restoring resources.

The university promotes emergency management to the campus community through outreach and training.  Please contact us for assistance with emergency preparedness in your office at 328-6166.
