Campus Emergency Plan - Right to Know

It is the right of all Richland staff, faculty, students and parents to know that emergency plans exist to offer them protection in times of emergency. Emergencies are very fluid and can change from moment to moment. No plan can include actions for every scenario but general flexible plans are in place to give direction to leaders and to the campus population. The preservation of life is the top priority followed by the protection of property. The situations addressed in the following paragraphs are emergencies for which colleges and universities across the country are preparing plans. Definitions of terms used in this plan are found at the end of the plan.
