The Emergency Management Planning Committee (EMPC) is an inter-disciplinary group that plans and guides the College's emergency management efforts. Members are responsible for implementing the objectives of the college's Emergency Management in Higher Education grant, 2010-2013.
EMPC members represent all area of the college – including instructional and operating units and satellite sites. This ambitious 20-member committee meets twice a month to keep the college on its forward trajectory toward emergency preparedness.
Individual group members are trained in the Incident Command System (ICS) which would be implemented in an emergency incident. EMPC coordination and support is provided by the Risk Management Services unit of Administrative Services.
