Emergency Management Team

No facility, organization or community, including North Carolina A&T, is immune from disaster.

Emergencies can arise at any time and from various natural or manmade causes. The best way to minimize potential loss and speed up the recovery from events such as hurricanes, snow storms, fires, terrorist acts, etc. is to plan ahead.

In order to respond effectively to emergency situations, N.C. A&T maintains an Emergency Management Plan and has created an Emergency Operations Center and an Emergency Management Team. The team is trained to evaluate and respond to major emergency situations using the Incident Command System (ICS). ICS ensures effective management of the people, organizations, and resources utilized in response to emergencies

The University is dependent on many interconnected services for the success of the day-to-day operations and has applied that same concept to the management of emergencies by the creation of its Emergency Management Team (EMT). The University’s EMT provides a framework within which essential units come together to coordinate the response to an emergency.
