Emergency Management Team
Duquesne University places the highest emphasis on protecting the health, safety, and well-being of its students, faculty, staff and visitors. The University's Emergency Management Team (EMT) includes representation from key areas across the University.
Emergency Operations on Campus
The EMT meets regularly to identify and prepare for a variety of possible emergency incidents with the following key goals in mind: preservation of life, protection of property and continuity of University academic and business operations. Emergency operations are guided by the National Incident Management System (NIMS), as established by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Consistent with NIMS, the University's emergency operations are modeled after the basic structure of the NIMS Incident Command System (ICS), while making adjustments as necessary to meet the unique structure or needs of the University. The Duquesne University Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is designed to prepare the University community for a variety of possible emergency incidents and can be found on DORI.
