Emergency Operations Plan

The California State University, Bakersfield Emergency Management Plan, identifies the campus emergency planning program, functional organization and key roles, and response protocols. The purpose of the all hazards emergency operations plan (EOP), promulgated in October 2017, is to establish policies, procedures and an organizational structure for response to an emergency. The EOP is in compliance with the State of California’s Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) which was enacted in the California Government Code in 1995 and with the Federal government’s National Incident Management System (NIMS) released in 2004. Organizational operating procedures utilize the Incident Command System (ICS) for response to an emergency.
These systems provide an organizational framework under which all agencies function in an integrated fashion. It organizes the flow of information, provides coordination between responding agencies, and assists in rapid mobilization and deployment of resources.
The Emergency Operations Plan is a living document subject to continual review and revision. The major goals of the EOP and supporting guidance are to:

1.Ensure the safety and security of the faculty, staff, students and visitors.

2.Minimize disruption of academic programs.

3.Minimize university losses.

4.Maintain university operations and essential services.

5.Assist the community in disaster recovery.
