No facility, organization, or community, including the University of Kansas Medical Center, is immune from disaster. Emergencies can arise at any time from various man-made and natural causes, such as, tornadoes, fires, terrorist acts, etc. The best way to minimize potential loss and ensure a quick and efficient recovery from the above events is to properly prepare!!

The University is committed to ensure that all faculty, staff, students, and visitors are well prepared for any event, which is why the University maintains an Emergency Operations Plan (EOP), which has response methods for all hazard emergencies on campus. This plan is available to all employees and students.

For further information on Emergency Management and the department's commitment to a more prepared campus, contact the University Emergency Management Office at!
