Emergency Management Policy

  1. POLICY
    The State of Delaware can be threatened by emergency and disaster situations both natural, such as flash floods, hurricanes, winter storms and fires, and man-made, such as hazardous materials accidents, nuclear releases, civil disorders and terrorist threats.

    Because the University of Delaware differs in size, complexity, and function from public agencies in the State of Delaware and the County of New Castle, it is prudent for the University to develop an emergency management program of its own to focus on disaster preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation.

Questions related to this policy should be directed to: Executive Director of Campus and Public Safety
