Our Mission:

The Office of Emergency Management supports our students, faculty, and staff to ensure that as a university we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards that may impact our campus.

Our Goal:

Develop, maintain, and sustain a campus-wide, comprehensive, all-hazard, risk based emergency management program that engages the whole community.

Our Plan:

The Cal Poly Pomona Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) establishes the emergency organization, assigns tasks, specifies policies and general procedures, and provides for coordination of planning efforts of the various emergency staff and service elements of the jurisdiction.
