Emergency Response TeamThe Emergency Response Team (ERT) comes together to plan for and respond to emergencies. The ERT provides general guidance and direction to the College community during the emergency and serves as chief overall decision-maker. The chair of this team is typically the dean of students. His/her decision will prevail on issues should no consensus be reached.
A consistent ERT working group meets regularly to plan and practice. The working group consists of the dean of students (chair), assistant vice president for campus operations, chief information officer, assistant vice president for public and media relations, associate dean of students/director of residence life, environmental health and safety officer, and assistant vice president for academic administration. In the event of an emergency, the team is expanded to include key people, depending on the type of emergency.
