University of Louisville
Emergency Preparedness and Contingency Plan
This policy applies to the University Community (administrators, faculty, staff, and students) and visitors.
REASON FOR POLICY
The Plan defines the course of action to be followed in case of a fire, explosion or release of hazardous materials, waste or waste constituents which could threaten human health or the environment.
In the event that an emergency condition occurs that has potential to threaten human health or the environment, the Emergency Preparedness and Contingency Plan (Plan) will be initiated and maintained until the emergency condition has been stabilized.
The decision to implement the Plan will be made by the Emergency Coordinator and depends upon whether or not the emergency situation presents a threat to human health or the environment.
