CALS admin, building managers and department administrators are preparing Emergency Response Plans

The CALS administration will be working with the police department and building managers over the next several months to inventory, review and assist in the preparation of Emergency Response Plans. With recent events at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University, this project has taken on a renewed emphasis.

Associate Dean Frank Kooistra will be working directly with building managers and departmental administrators to ensure the college has plans in place to address emergency procedures. Building managers have already been contacted regarding their Emergency Response Plan and they have been asked to provide Kooistra with a file copy for administration. The next step is to implement a review process that takes into account those buildings that are seen to have priority over others. The goal is to have a review of all ERP’s within the next twelve months. Questions can be directed at Frank Kooistra at 262-9812 or
