Emergency management is a process that includes the mitigation, planning, response, and recovery to disaster and crisis. While Landmark College takes every precaution to prevent a disaster or crisis from occurring, there may be unexpected situations in which an emergency response is deemed necessary. To assist in the preparation for such a response, the Department of Campus Safety continuously works with employees of the College to ensure that basic guidelines for response are understood. An Incident Response Plan for Employees was issued to each employee to assist in guiding them through these emergencies.
The College has an established Emergency Operations Center and an Emergency Operations Plan, developed for the planning for, and responding to, emergency and crisis situations. The Center is staffed by employees who are trained through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s National Incident Management System for interoperability with responding local emergency service providers. Through this combined effort, the College will be able to return to the mission of educating students as soon as possible after an emergency. The consistent training of the Center staff ensures that the campus is ready to respond as needed.
While all employees play a role in the response to emergencies, disasters, and crises that affect the College, the members of the Department of Campus Safety, Department of Student Affairs, and Facilities Department are dedicated to responding as the “boots on the ground” members of the College. They play a vital role in the resolution of the incident and prepare for a variety of incidents on a regular basis.
