Emergency Response

Emergencies are unplanned events that can cause significant injury or death to employees, students, or the public, disrupt or close down operations, cause physical or environmental damage, or harm the university's public image. Proper planning is necessary to minimize the impact of emergencies on university operations. The UTPA has a comprehenensive emergency response plan designed to prepare the university to properly handle emergency situations that may occur on campus. The plan contains procedures for notifying appropriate personnel, defines responsibilities, and provides guidelines for handling emergencies. While this guide does not cover every possible situation, it supplies the basic information necessary to cope with most man-made or natural emergencies.
