The Emergency Management Team, which is made up of representatives from across our three campuses, was created to lead Quinnipiac through major emergencies that threaten the health and safety of the University community.
The director of emergency management activates the University's Emergency Operations Center, which is available to respond around the clock, 365 days a year. Representatives of the Emergency Management Team meet monthly and oversee various facets of responding to a crisis, including planning, operations, logistics, public information and internal communication, safety, and communication with the senior level management of the University and other major stakeholders. Members of the Emergency Management Team also have completed the Federal Emergency Management Agency's National Incident Management System training.
