1 Purpose The Clark Emergency Response Plan establishes a basic guide to Clark faculty, staff and students for responding to major emergencies on the Clark University Campus. The Plan describes the roles and responsibilities of the various departments and personnel during an emergency situation. Personnel with specific responsibilities to be carried out during an emergency at both a department and University level are expected to understand the procedures for which they are responsible. This Emergency Response Plan is invoked whenever an emergency affecting the campus cannot be managed through normal channels. Response to an emergency will be conducted within the framework of the Plan whenever possible. The Emergency Response Plan is designed to protect lives and property through effective use of University and community resources. The Plan identifies specific departments and individuals that are responsible for emergency response with critical support services and it provides a management structure for coordinating and deploying essential resources. Scope This is the official University level plan that guides the emergency response of University personnel and resources during an emergency situation. However, nothing in this Plan shall be construed in a manner that limits the use of good judgment and common sense in matters not foreseen or covered by the elements of this plan. This Plan and organization shall be subordinate to federal, state, and local government plans during a disaster declaration by those authorities. This Emergency Response Plan is consistent with established practices relating to coordination of emergency response. Accordingly this plan incorporates the use of the Incident Command System to facilitate interdepartmental coordination, and to promote common terminology and command structure with outside agencies. The Plan is an all hazards plan and may be activated in response to a broad range of emergency incidents including (but not limited to): Aircraft Crashes Bomb Threat/Detonation Civil Disturbances Epidemic/Illnesses Extended Power Outages Fires and Explosions Hazardous Materials Releases o Chemical o Biological o Radioactive Mass Casualty Incidents Natural Disasters o Hurricane o Tornado o Earthquake Terrorism Search and Rescue Events Severe Weather o Flooding o Blizzards/Snowstorms/Ice Storms o Severe Thunderstorms
2 Assumptions The Clark Emergency Response Plan anticipates the problems likely to be encountered during a major emergency or disaster. Emergency planning should be based on worse-case conditions. The following assumptions are made and should be used as general guidelines for reading this plan and used for preparations of Department / Building Emergency Plans: The succession of events in an emergency or disaster is not predictable. Therefore published operational plans, including this plan, should serve only as a guide and may require modification in order to meet the requirements of the emergency. An emergency or disaster may occur without warning at any time, day, night, weekend or holidays. An emergency or a disaster may be declared if information indicates that such conditions are developing or probable. Critical services including electricity, water, heat, information systems, transportation infrastructure, and telecommunications may be interrupted. Disasters may be community-wide and regional or local services may not be available. Emergency Levels: For planning purposes, the college has established three levels of response to emergencies, which are based on the severity of the situation and the availability of campus resources: Level 1 Minor Localized Incident. A minor, localized department or building incident that is resolved through normal channels with existing department plans, campus resources and /or limited outside help. The incident does not affect the overall functioning capacity of the University and the Clark Emergency Response Plan would not be activated. Level 2 Emergency. A major incident or event that completely disrupts one or more operations of the University. Multiple University resources are involved in addition to outside assistance. The Emergency Response Plan activated. Level 3 Disaster. A major incident or disaster that seriously impairs or halts the operations of the University. The Emergency Response Plan activated. Emergency Authority: This plan is promulgated under the authority of the President of the University or a designee. All decisions concerning the discontinuation of University function, cancellation of classes, or cessation of operations, rest with the President or his/her designee. In the absence of the President, his/her designee becomes, in succession, the Provost, the Executive Vice President, the Vice President for Government and Community Affairs, the Vice President for Marketing and Communications. The University Incident Commander is the individual responsible for the control of all aspects in an emergency situation, including directing the Emergency Response Team. The Executive Vice President functions as the University Incident Commander. In the absence of the Executive Vice President, the following individuals in the order listed below will function as incident commander: Vice President of Government and Community Affairs Director of Physical Plant Chief of Police Business Manager 2
3 Emergency Priorities: Clark personnel and equipment will be utilized in accordance with the guidelines set forth in the Emergency Response Plan to accomplish the following priorities in order of importance: Priority 1 Priority 2 Priority 3 Priority 4 Priority 5 Protection of Human Life Protection of University Assets Maintenance of University Services Communication with Community and Media Restoration of University Operations Emergency Control Centers If the Emergency Response Plan is activated, the University Incident Commander will call the Emergency Response Team Members to report to the designated Emergency Control Center. The Campus locations designated as Emergency Control Centers are listed in order. 1. President s Office in Geography Building 2. Goddard Library Control Center via downing street entrance 3. University Police Station in Bullock Hall 4. Physical Plant Office at 24 Charlotte Street Emergency Response Plan Activation Plan activation begins at the discretion of the University Incident Commander upon the receipt of information of an emergency event or threat of an emergency. Based on University Police and Physical Plant recommendation, and information obtained from other appropriate entities, the University Incident Commander will declare the level of the emergency and activate the Emergency Response Plan to the extent necessary. Implementation of the Emergency Response Plan Depending on the nature of the emergency, the Incident Commander will initiate the broadcast of a Clark Alerts message as required and notify The Emergency Response Team to assemble in the designated Emergency Control Center location. If the Emergency Response Team Member realizes that he or she will not be available to respond to the call, he or she will be responsible for contacting their designated backup to proceed to the Emergency Control Center and notify the Incident Commander of the change in coverage. If in the event the Emergency Response Team Member, and or Designate, can not be located, or will not be able to get to the Emergency Control Center, the Incident Commander will appoint an individual to assume that member s role until relieved by the Emergency Response Team Member or a more qualified replacement. During the emergency, the Emergency Response Team is under the direction of the Incident Commander who will determine the manner in which University personnel and resources are required to address the emergency. In the Event that the emergency were to occur during periods of time when the University is not in full operation, such as nighttime, weekends or holidays, the structure of the Emergency 3
4 Response Plan remains the same. Its implementation may vary depending on the available resources to respond. Until relieved, persons appointed to the Response Team roles should consult with the Emergency Response Team member they are representing for the guidelines discussed in this plan. Under these conditions, and practice, the University police officer in charge will assume the Incident Commander s Role until relieved by the Incident Commander. In the event that Local, State Police, Fire or other Government Official agency assumes command of the emergency event, the Incident Commander and Emergency Response Team will support the government teams. Notification of Emergency Situations The Incident Commander will determine if a notification is to be sent for all events except Active Shooter situations. Notification of Level 2 and Level 3 emergency situations will be issued primarily via the Clark Alerts which will send electronic messages to cell phones or land line telephones either with voice or text message options selected by the recipient. notification will be sent to all Clark active s addresses and for those members of the Clark Community that have not selected a Cell or Land-line Telephone message option. In addition to Clark Alerts, other communications will be fully utilized to communicate the emergency situation and provide information about the event: The Clark Emergency Web page will be activated, radio, and television may also be used as necessary. Warning Should it be deemed necessary to warn the University community of an impending threat or emergency situation, University Police is designated to maintain the University communications center with the authority to alert warning resources and activities based on the initial report, and information obtained from other appropriate entities. In consultation with the President, the University Incident Commander will declare the level of the emergency. If either an Emergency or a Disaster (Level 2 or 3) is declared, the Emergency Response Plan will be activated. Upon declaration of an emergency or disaster, the Emergency Response Team members will be notified and should report immediately to the designated control center location. Predictable events, such as a certain meteorological storms, are treated differently from emergency incidents. Physical Plant and University Police are designated to monitor these events on a 24/7/365 basis. The Director of Physical Plant or his/her designee will contact the University Incident Commander, either directly or via University Police as necessary. Campus Recovery After a disaster where University operations have been shut down, in part or whole, the involved area may be dangerous. University Police along with Physical Plant personnel will inspect the buildings and area to determine if the area is safe. Only after the environment is declared safe can restoration efforts begin, followed by the reopening normal University operations. Roles and Responsibilities The University s Emergency Response Plan consists of three major groups:: Emergency Response Policy Committee (Sr. Administration) Emergency Response Team Emergency Response Team with supporting Unit Plans 4
5 Emergency Response Policy Committee (Sr. Administration) Responsibilities The committee consists of the members of senior leadership augmented by the Emergency Response Plan Coordinator, the Director of Physical Plant, the Director of Human Resources, and the Chief of University Police.

11 Purpose Clark University Emergency Response Plan Guidelines for Department/Building Emergency Planning The purpose of a department/building level Emergency Response Plan is to familiarize faculty, staff and students with emergency procedures for situations specific to the department or facility, including evacuation routes and hazardous materials spill response. The plan should be used as a training document, and all personnel should become familiar with it. The plan should be periodically reviewed and revised as needed. All revisions will be distributed as per the Department / Building Emergency Plans Distribution paragraph below. Department / Building Emergency Plans - Components Components of the plan must include emergency response procedures, stay in place procedures, an evacuation plan, training procedures and a list of individual s assigned responsibilities under the plan. The plan should also include emergency guidelines to be used in the event of a major disaster when professional emergency response assistance is unavailable or is unable to respond quickly. In such cases, the department or building occupants may need to be self-reliant for an extended period of time. Additional information on emergency procedures such as rescue, building security, area(s) of refuge, rescue assistance, and Emergency Control Center locations should be included. Department / Building Emergency Plans Distribution Once the plan is completed, copies are to be sent to the Business Manager and the department s safety committee (if applicable) for review. Upon acceptance, copies should be distributed to the department personal responsible for responding to the emergency the Business Manager University Police and Safety Website. It is the department s responsibility to distribute the campus copies and revisions. Department / Building Emergency Plans - Responsibilities Department / Building Emergency Plans -Roles and Responsibilities Deans, Directors, and Department Heads Every dean, director, and department head shall appoint a specific person as Building/Facility Coordinator for every activity under their control. The Building/Facility Coordinator has the following general responsibilities prior to and during a Level I emergency: a.

These policies and procedures go into effect in the event of a Level II or Level III emergency. Copies of these plans are available on the University s website or from the Business Manager s Office. These policies and plans do not address Level I emergency procedures at the department/building level. Therefore, the University requires the development of a specific emergency response and disaster plans for Level I emergencies for each campus facility. Technical assistance for facility plan development is available from the Business Manager. Annual review of the Department / Building Plans is required. The following is a minimum outline for developing a building or department emergency response and disaster plan. The level of detail will depend on the size of the building, the number of occupants and the hazards present.
