Emergency Operations Plan

UIC Emergency Operations Plan Heading link

The UIC Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) has been developed for university response and recovery operations, outlining actions with the support of local, state, and federal response and recovery activities. The EOP is intended to be a flexible and functional framework that addresses critical topics in an emergency, including communications, warning systems, rapid deployment, and identification of leadership. This document is also intended to pre-identify locations to support responders and the UIC community, response activities, and resource requests within the Chicago and regional campus.

This is a “living” document that reflects the ever-evolving environment at UIC, and will be reviewed, maintained, and updated regularly. It is prepared in compliance with the Federal National Response Framework (NRF), the National Incident Management System (NIMS), the Illinois Emergency Management Agency-Office of Homeland Security (IEMA-OHS) Act (20 ILCS 3305 and 29 ILCS 305), the Higher Education Opportunity Act (20 U.S.C 1001), the Campus Security Enhancement Act of 2008 (110 ILCS 12), and related actions as governed by the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act) (42 U.S.C. 5121).

The University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences Systems (UI Health) has its own Emergency Management Plan. UIC and UI Health developed a collaborative process ensuring transparency and information sharing, planning, training and exercise initiatives, and a continuous review and evaluation of response and recovery protocols.
