University of Vermont

Emergency Management

Operations & Working Groups

The University of Vermont follows the National Incident Management System framework to manage the emerging demands of any incident, emergency, or crisis happening on or impacting its campus, and to link its emergency management to the larger local, state, and federal context.

During a University emergency or crisis, the President of the University (or the next most senior available administrator) has ultimate responsibility and authority to set the direction regarding emergency management, making key executive decisions and declaring a “state of campus emergency,” should that become necessary. The President is supported by a Policy Group (primarily members of his cabinet).
