The Department of Emergency Management, in partnership with key internal and external stakeholders, develops and maintains various plans to manage emergencies and disasters that may affect the university.

The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) is the University's guiding document for the management of emergencies and disasters affecting USF. It includes hazard specific plans, operational plans, and campus-specific annexes.

The University's Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) provides guidance and instructions for continuing critical campus operations in the event of a disruption.

A Building Emergency Action Plan (BEAP) provides response strategies for a variety of emergencies that may occur in buildings across campus. Every BEAP is unique to each building.

More information on these plans and additional planning resources are available by clicking on the links to the left.
