University Emergency Plans
The university has developed a variety of Crisis Plans to be implemented in the event of a major threat to the campus. These include:
Emergency Operations Plan
The Emergency Operations Plan provides policies and procedures for the coordination of communications within the University and between the University, the media, and the public in the event of an emergency. Emergencies may include fires, bomb threats, and acts of terrorism, natural disasters, or major crimes. The plan establishes guidelines for dealing with a variety of situations and to ensure that campus officials and communicators are familiar with those procedures and their roles in the event of a crisis. The plan is designed to be used in conjunction with the normal decision-making hierarchy of the University and does not supplant that decision-making process.
Pandemic Flu Response Plan
This plan details incident level responsibilities of various departments and units in the event of a pandemic flu. This document incorporates good preparedness, response, recovery and sustainability planning guidance and procedures from various sources, to include Federal, State and local entities, academic institutions, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), public health officials and non-profits and volunteer agencies.
Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan
The objectives of the University of North Carolina Asheville Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan are to incorporate and coordinate all the facilities and personnel of the University to form an efficient organization, capable of reacting adequately and appropriately in the face of any disaster and to conduct such operations as the nature of the disaster requires, whether it be to combat a local emergency or to assist other jurisdictions in the event of an emergency.
