IN ANY POLICE, FIRE OR MEDICAL EMERGENCY, CALL 911

Colorado Mesa University's Emergency Operations Plan is designed to effectively coordinate university and community resources to protect life and property immediately following a major natural or accidental disaster on CMU's campuses. The plan is placed into operation whenever an emergency affecting the campus cannot be controlled through normal channels.

Primary emergencies envisioned by the plan are active shooter/critical incident, fire, chemical spill, radiological emergency, bomb threat or the need for campus wide evacuation.

University personnel and equipment will be utilized to provide priority protection of:

  1. Life
  2. Environment
  3. Property
  4. Restoration of the academic program

This outline is not intended to cover all contingencies that may result in a campus emergency. However, it is designed to provide employees with general guidelines to follow in certain emergency situations.
