Emergency Management


What is the purpose of Emergency Management?

Central Washington University has an all hazards response plan that has been in place for several years. CWU has an Emergency Management Committee representing a cross-section of university personnel. This committee is responsible for analysis, evaluation, and recommendations to improve CWU's capability in mitigating against, preparing for, responding to and recovering from disasters or critical incidents.

The Emergency Management Committee and CWU want to remind our community that being prepared to handle hazards is an individual and an organizational responsibility. We hope that you access and review the information provided within this website to better prepare yourself for potential emergencies that may occur. If you have questions, suggestions, or need assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.

There is currently no emergency.
