The purpose of emergency planning is to ensure proper effort by all areas of the University and to protect life and property of the Rice community, to keep lines of communication open to all areas of the community, and to define responsibilities of essential personnel in the event of a man-made or natural emergency.
The University has prepared an Emergency Management Plan to provide direction to faculty, staff and students in the event of a potential or actual emergency. The Plan consists of three principal elements: planning for, managing, and recovering from an emergency situation.
