Op2.06 Emergency Response Plan

Missouri State University is committed to supporting the welfare of its students, faculty, staff, and visitors. One way in which the University fulfills this commitment is by preparing and routinely evaluating its response to emergency situations faced by the University community. Therefore, the University Safety and Transportation Department maintains an Emergency Response Plan, fashioned in accordance with appropriate laws, regulations, and policies that govern crisis/emergency preparedness and reflects the best and most current thinking in this area.

The Emergency Response Plan is designed to maximize human survival; preserve property; minimize danger; restore normal operations of the University; and assure responsive communications with the University community, surrounding neighborhoods, and the City of Springfield. The Emergency Response Plan is intended to be sufficiently flexible to accommodate contingencies of all types, magnitudes, and durations. Therefore, the Safety and Transportation Department, in coordination with University Administration, local law enforcement, and area Emergency Management Professionals will consistently review and evaluate the Emergency Response Plan and the procedures and processes necessary for implementation.

While the Emergency Response Plan will provide for aid to the local community where appropriate, the prime responsibility of the Emergency Response Plan will be to the University community for which it is designed.

Details of the Emergency Response Plan can be obtained by contacting the Missouri State University Safety and Transportation Department.
