Operations

Any member of the IMT should contact any other member at any time regarding emergency incidents.  Additionally, any member should take the initiative to convene a meeting of the IMT whenever it is necessary to do so before, during, or after an emergency incident.  The IMT makes appropriate decisions and executes those decisions to ensure the safety and security of students, faculty, and staff.

 

Incident Response Administrator

For major emergency incidents, at least one member of the IMT should arrive at the incident site to serve as the Incident Response Administrator to represent the IMT, the President, and the College. 

 

Recommendations to the President (or Dean of the Faculty) 

When time and circumstances permit, the IMT makes recommendations to the President of the College.  If the President is inaccessible, then the IMT makes recommendations to the Dean of the Faculty.  The IMT executes the President's (or Dean's) decisions and directives to ensure the safety and security of students, faculty, and staff.
