Emergency Preparedness at UPEI

UPEI is committed to creating a safe and healthy living, learning, and working environment. The health and safety of our students, employees, and other campus users are the highest priority.

The Emergency Management Committee has developed the UPEI Emergency Management Plan. Established under the authority of the President, it is intended for use by UPEI personnel in case of a critical incident, emergency, and disaster situation. Each emergency situation requires a specific response in terms of required resources and proper procedures. This Emergency Management Plan addresses types of emergencies on an individual basis. However, these procedures are designed to be flexible in order to accommodate contingencies of various types and magnitudes.

Emergency Management Plan objectives

  • to minimize personal injury, human trauma, and property damage
  • to maintain academic programs
  • to keep the University community, as well as the public, informed about the emergency. Clear direction and timely communication will assist in an expedient resumption of regular operations.
