The College's emergency management program is guided by its Strategic Plan. The major planning documents below describe how the College assesses hazards, responds to emergencies, maintains readiness, and reduces risk.
The Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment (HIRA) is an objective assessment of the risk posed by hazards that may affect the College, developed with the participation of many College, Town, and external partner stakeholders. This industry best practice enables the College to be intentional in its emergency management programming and to maximize risk reduction by proportionately allocating resources. While a risk assessment helps to prioritize and justify resource allocation, it does not prescribe specific activities for risk reduction.
The Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) establishes the framework within which the College responds to emergencies that require extraordinary resources or coordination to protect life safety, health, well-being, property, the environment, and critical operations. The EOP primarily focuses on how College administrators address the secondary effects of an emergency and the consequences of on-scene tactical decisions made by first responders. It is complemented by functional, hazard-specific, and department-level plans and procedures which align with this plan.
The Training & Exercise Plan is a schedule of preparedness activities for key stakeholders. It includes a program of risk-based outreach to the College community.
The Training & Exercise Plan is in development.
The Prevention & Mitigation Plan identifies ongoing and proposed activities for long-term risk reduction and a strategy for their prioritization and implementation.
