Declaration of Emergency

In the event of an emergency coming to the attention of the Campus Protection Unit, the CPU shift supervisor shall follow CPU standard operating procedures. If the emergency warrants, the shift supervisor shall communicate immediately with the CPU duty officer. Depending on the magnitude of the incident, the duty officer would contact the CPU manager or designee, who would then communicate with the Executive Director of Infrastructure and Operations, or designee. The Executive Director of Infrastructure Operations and Finance will, if necessary, declare an emergency, and notify all members of the Management Team. 

The purpose of this communication process is to ensure that the information reaches all relevant decision makers, and also all affected employees and students, external stakeholders and the media.
