Emergency Preparedness Team

The SPHHP’s Emergency Preparedness Team coordinates efforts to maintain a safe and secure learning and work environment. In collaboration with University Police Services and Fire and Life Safety, the team helps to prepare the school for emergency situations arising from fire, weather, violence or aggression, or any other emergency (including first response for physical or mental health emergencies). This preparation, a proactive one, provides advance planning for these emergency situations and includes ongoing evaluation of our procedures and resources.
