The Institutional Safety and Security (ISS) Executive Committee is the administrative component of the Institutional Command Team that ensures all needs are met. The ISS has over thirty members, all of whom are leaders of their areas/departments (e.g. President of UTMB, CEO of Health System, CFO, CIO, CTO, etc). The ISS meets quarterly to discuss the major topics in the diagram below, in addition to
real incident review, exercise review, tracking major improvement activities from After-Action Reviews, presentations on key areas of interest, subcommittee reports, and general preparedness efforts. These meetings are facilitated by the department of Institutional Preparedness.
The ISS has several subcommittees that meet quarterly and report back at a higher, executive level to the ISS. These subcommittees address emergency preparedness, safety, security, and other critical needs of the institution. An organizational chart of these subcommittees is located on the right side of this page.
