Emergency Planning

Emergency Planning at Duke occurs at two levels: for the institution as a whole and for individual departments and teams. Duke’s Emergency Management program primarily focuses on institution-wide planning, which includes the University Emergency Operations Plan.

Individual departments are highly encouraged to create their own emergency plans, and many Duke departments and teams have already created a variety of emergency plans, with many focusing on department-specific hazards. Duke Emergency Management can provide assistance to Duke departments creating emergency plans or templates. For assistance, please contact us.
