About us

Emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere, and often without warning. Keeping our campus safe is a shared responsibility and ensuring we are all as prepared as possible can make a difference. The Emergency Management team assists our community members and academic, research and operational units in preparing to respond to and recover from emergencies. 

Supported by Policy 125 – Emergency Management and Business Continuity and by way of planning, exercising and awareness, the Emergency Management team fulfills its mandate by directing the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) and through the administration of its 3 programs: 

  • Emergency Management Program 
  • Business Continuity Program 
  • Fire Safety Program

“To prepare the University for emergencies and significant disruptions, and to maximize its resilience to help ensure its academic and research missions are realized.”
