USU Emergency Management

USU Emergency Management prepares the university community for emergencies and major disasters through planning, training, establishing policies, and coordination of information and resources. The department directs the planning, mitigation, response, and recovery activities for all USU locations.

Emergency Management manages the USU Alert system, which alerts the campus community when there is a significant emergency, crime on campus or safety concern.
