The purpose of emergency management is to increase the University’s capabilities to respond to the hazards that threaten the campus, all the while, preventing or reducing the impact of the hazards on the community. Emergency Management coordinates the activities of various departments responsible for continued operations during disasters, coordinate inter-local agreements for use of resources, communicate with state and federal agencies, and provide education and training. The University of Utah is committed to the welfare of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Our emergency management program is designed to respect this commitment; to maximize human safety and survival; to minimize danger; to preserve university property; to restore normal working conditions; and to assure responsive communications within the university community and to our surrounding neighborhoods, the broader Salt Lake City community, and media outlets.
