Operational Summary

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is responsible for developing and maintaining a comprehensive, all-hazards emergency management plan to protect students, faculty and staff, visitors and university infrastructure.

The department prepares adequate plans and procedures to prepare for, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from large scale crises or disasters. Our efforts protect life, enhance the campus living, learning and working environment. In addition, we seek to resume normal operations as quickly as possible following any major disaster or large scale emergency. The department offers annual training exercises, safety drills and campus, and community outreach.  The department aims to effectively communicate to the campus community in emergent situations through the university’s mass notification system (E2 Campus) and the Wildcat Safe Application. 

Emergency Notification Enrollment

In an ongoing effort to better disseminate information during campus emergencies, B-CU has implemented the Emergency Notification System. The alert system will only send information regarding emergency conditions, including weather cancellations and delays. No advertising or non-emergency messages will be sent.
