The Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) provides a framework in which MSU, along with its officials, units, departments, offices and campus community, can work to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from the effects of emergencies and disasters. This plan accomplishes the following:

  • Establishes the emergency management organization required to mitigate a significant emergency or disaster affecting Montana State University.
  • Identifies the policies, responsibilities and procedures required to protect health and safety, University property, and mitigate the environmental effects of natural, technological or human-caused emergencies and disasters.
  • Establishes the operational concepts and procedures for the coordination of field response with Montana State University’s Emergency Management Committee (EMC) and Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Group activities.
