The Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is the college’s plan for handling major emergencies and disasters. This plan is based on a realistic approach to the problems likely to be encountered and is based upon the following assumptions:
- A major emergency or disaster may occur at any time of the day or night, weekends or holidays, with little or no warning.
- Since events in a major emergency or disaster are not predictable, published emergency plans will serve only as a guide and may require modification in order to meet the requirements of the emergency.
- Major emergencies or disasters may affect widespread areas; therefore, city, county, and federal emergency services may not be available. The college may expect a delay of up to 72 hours in receiving off-campus emergency help.
The goals of the plan are to protect lives and property and to restore instruction as soon as possible after a major emergency or disaster.
