Building Emergency Planning
NOTE: The University of Kansas Medical Center launched an intranet on June 20, 2016 to provide easier access to information and tools used by our faculty and staff. Valid KU Medical Center network credentials are required to access the intranet.
Many of the forms and procedures for Emergency Management have been relocated to the intranet. If you are affiliated with another institution and are interested in collaborating or learning more about our procedures, please contact University Emergency Management at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Planning for emergencies before they take place will ensure the safety of this Universities most important asset... YOU!
No matter which building, or how many buildings, you spend time in on campus, you should always be aware of the specific emergency procedures you may need to follow.
KUMC requires a Building Emergency Plan (BEP) to be completed for every building designed for human occupancy on campus. These plans will include basic information on emergency response recommendations, as well as specific procedures to follow for the building.

- Your buildings advisory committee and building emergency leaders (If you noticed that your department does not have a designee on the BAC, please email: email@example.com )
Has your Building Emergency Leader (BEL) picked up your weather radio yet? Emergency Management has partnered with the Metropolitan Emergency Managers Committee to receive discounted weather radios after graciously being awarded a grant from The University of Kansas Auxiliary Department. There will be one for each building - Building Emergency Leaders are to pick them up from Kelly Dunn or Erica Hupka. Want to apply for your own grant? Click here.
