The goal of emergency planning at Cornell is to be fully prepared for immediate and effective response to, and recovery from emergencies.
These efforts are guided by Cornell’s desire to protect the following, in priority order:
The Cornell University Emergency Planning and Recovery - - College/Unit Planning System
has been designed to provide colleges and major administrative units with the tools to create comprehensive, “live” unit emergency plans. The EPR system focuses on the mission and critical functions each unit performs and captures critical information about employees, roles, responsibilities, IT requirements, facilities, and contacts that are needed during an emergency and after during the recovery. The EPR system interfaces with the University’s PeopleSoft system, the Facilities Inventory System, and the Identify Management System to help ensure that plans contain current information. Annual review of all plans will help units continue to be prepared for an emergency event.
