Environmental Health & Safety
The Eastern Michigan University Emergency Management Office is dedicated to creating and maintaining a safe and resilient campus community through mitigation, preparedness, training and educational outreach efforts. Using an all-hazards approach, EMU Emergency Management works to mitigate the effects of, plan for, respond to and quickly recover from emergencies.
What is Emergency Management?
Emergency management is a systematic way to think through and manage the entire life cycle of an emergency. It improves effectiveness by clearly defining required capabilities, shortening the time required to gain control of an incident, and facilitating the rapid exchange of information about the incident.

When activated, the alert plays a recorded message or audio tone until canceled. Depending on the phone model, either stationary or scrolling text displays simultaneously. The first integration test will take place on Friday, January 27, 2017 at 12:00pm.
