Below are the activities the University of Miami wants you to be aware of BEFORE an emergency occurs! These activities are designed to improve response capabilities and ensure a safe and secure community for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

GETTING READY

Though some people feel it is impossible to be prepared for unexpected emergencies, the truth is that taking preparedness actions helps people deal with disasters much more effectively when they do occur. GET READY by familiarizing yourself with the resources below.

PLANNING

Planning includes developing effective response plans, policies, and procedures.

TRAINING & EXERCISE

By training personnel on the plans, and exercising the plans, the University can provide effective response to any disaster or emergency incident.

    • Camp Directors are responsible for understanding their roles in an emergency impacting the University of Miami and are required to complete an online emergency preparedness orientation on an annual basis. Camp Directors are also responsible for ensuring all of their paid and volunteer staff working at a University of Miami facility are familiar with the University’s emergency plans and procedures. All emergency information can be accessed from the University’s Emergency Preparedness website at www.miami.edu/prepare. Camp Directors and their staff should also confirm that the University of Miami Office of Emergency Management has their correct contact information to receive all Emergency Notification Network alerts by emailing oem@miami.edu or calling 305-284-8005.
