Emergency Operations Plan (EOP)
The University of Alabama has a comprehensive emergency operations plan in place to deal with incidents that may occur on campus. The plan incorporates the U.S. Homeland Security’s National Incident Management System (NIMS) protocols and delegates the University Police as the initial responder. A synopsis of the plan can be found at the below link.
In addition to the EOP, the University maintains a number of plans for incidents, events, and business continuity. These plans are sensitive and, therefore, unpublished. However, given the concern over the developing flu outbreak (H1N1), a summary of the University’s Pandemic Flu Plan is listed below.
