Emergency Operations Plan Executive Summary

The Emergency Operations Plan meets current State of Connecticut and Federal statutory requirements.  The Emergency Operations Plan contains:             

  • key concepts and activities of planning, response and recovery;
  • a common concept of coordination, both internally and in partnership with external agencies;
  • expectations and processes for gathering and sharing information, as well as decision-making;
  • clear roles and responsibilities for key divisions, departments and offices; and
  • provides resource management, finance and administrative guidelines for incident management.


The Emergency Operations Plan divides into three major parts:

  1. Basic Plan: Presents an enterprise framework for the emergency management program for UConn across all campuses (including UConn Health) and Education Abroad programs.
  2. Functional Annexes: Seven major annexes provide detailed considerations for emergency activities that are common across different types of incidents. These annexes contain an overview of UConn’s enterprise-level operations, concepts of operation for each campus and roles and responsibilities for each division, department or office that has an identified lead or supporting function. The Functional Annexes are:
  • External Affairs and Public Information (public information, crisis communication, public education and outreach)
  • Agricultural, Natural Resources and Animal Care (animal care, animal disease management, natural resource assessment and response, agriculture, water management, sustainability)
  • Public Protection (university safety emergency communication, life safety programs, security programs, emergency response, protective actions)
  • Infrastructure Systems (utility systems support, facilities management and assignment, roadway and access control, information technology systems)
  • Human Services Support (sheltering and feeding, family reunification and assistance, donation and volunteer management, memorials/vigil planning, spiritual support services)
  • Public Health and Medical (emergency medical services and mass casualty management, infectious disease response, fatality management, medical countermeasures, health care surge for the University community)
  • Recovery and Mitigation (damage assessment, debris management, short and long term recovery planning, mitigation planning process)
  1. A Hazard Specific Annex: This Annex provides detailed considerations on how UConn will respond to a number of different specific hazards with a broad concept of operations containing actionable checklists. The Annex contains identified threats and hazards, including severe weather, active threat/violence/shooter, utility failure, mass casualty, mass fatality, pandemic influenza, significant events, explosion, bomb threat (including unattended package and suspicious package) and civil protest/unrest/demonstration, among others.
