It is the policy of UTMB to provide a framework for response to emergencies, internal or external,
naturally occurring or man-made, which will guide all staff in managing the event safely and assuring
rapid recovery to normal operating conditions.
All UTMB faculty, staff, students, contract employees, and volunteers should have a working knowledge
of the emergency preparedness plans relative to their department or school. They will be expected
to follow the plan in case of an emergency.
The Emergency Operations Plan
presented here is institutional, involving the hospitals, business and
administrative offices, the schools, and institutes. Developed collaboratively by representatives
from each of these areas, this information is reviewed annually, revised as necessary, and approved
by the President’s Council.
