Emergency Preparedness / Student Resources

Central Michigan University is committed to  the safety and security of our community. Although infrequent, emergencies can arise at any time and from various natural or manmade causes. The best way to minimize potential loss, and speed up the recovery from events such as tornadoes, snow storms, fires, or terrorist acts, etc. is to plan ahead.  The University, through various offices such as CMU Police and Risk Management, Environmental Health & Safety, continually reviews and updates the University's preparedness measures to address evolving threats. 

In order to respond effectively to emergency situations, Central Michigan University maintains various emergency management plans and has created an Emergency Operations Center and an Crisis Response Team. The team is trained to evaluate and respond to emergency situations using the Incident Command System (ICS).   ICS ensures effective management of the people, organizations, and resources utilized in response to emergencies.
