Emergency Management Plan

Overview of Emergency Operations

The Teachers College Emergency Management Plan (EMP) is based on the National Incident Management System (NIMS).

It brings together a wide range of expertise and experience in the varied campus functions and responsibilities necessary to successfully respond to campus wide emergencies.  The EMP will continually be reviewed, practiced, and updated to meet newly identified threats to our campus environment and to incorporate additional resources as they may become available. 

Teachers College is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment in which students, faculty, and staff can enjoy the Teachers College experience.  We encourage all members of the college community to become familiar with the EMP and to partner with us in ensuring the safety and security of our community.
