Systemwide Crisis and Emergency Management

UC takes a comprehensive approach to prevent, mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from any adverse event or disruption, including all types of emergencies and disasters. The goal is to create a disaster-resistant and disaster-resilient institution with effective crisis and consequence management capability.

The Emergency Management (EM) programs at all ten UC campuses and five medical centers are staffed by multi-disciplinary personnel in public safety (police/fire), EH&S, and various independent emergency management offices.

Risk Services provides strategic guidance, leadership, oversight, and systemwide coordination of personnel and resources in support of UC emergency management and continuity planning programs.
