Emergency Operations Plan
UIC Emergency Operations Plan
The UIC Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is a “living” document designed to be flexible and adaptable, and will be used in any emergency response situation regardless of the size, type, or complexity. It has been reviewed, approved, and formally adopted to provide a concept of operations for each phase of emergency management, and is designed to facilitate a timely, effective, efficient, and coordinated university response. It designates areas of responsibility and defines for the university the framework necessary to protect life, secure critical infrastructure and facilities, and restore teaching and research programs following a disaster/emergency.
The EOP is prepared in compliance with the Campus Security Enhancement Act of 2008 (110 ILCS 12/1 et seq.).
The University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences Systems (UI Health) has its own Emergency Management Plan, but will integrate maintenance and sustainment activities through a collaborative process with university stakeholders, through transparency and information sharing, collaborative planning, training and exercise initiatives, and a continuities review and evaluation and prioritization of response and recovery protocols that benefit the entire university.
