Emergency Response Plans

The Emergency Response Plan establishes procedures for mobilizing Boston University’s (BU) resources and communicating with the community in the event of a large-scale emergency. The Plan was developed by Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) in cooperation with over a dozen departments, colleges, and offices, as well as public safety agencies.

The Plan discusses the three levels/phases of emergency situations as well as evacuation and shelter-in-place procedures when evacuation is not appropriate. Posted below, are supplements to the Emergency Response Plan pertaining to emergency-specific events/incidents.
