Centenary College has an Emergency Operations Plan that provides a response system for staff, faculty, students, and visitors during an emergency or major natural disaster occurring on Centenary property.
The Emergency Operations Plan outlines coordinated and effective use of resources to protect life and property immediately following a major emergency or disaster on the Centenary campus. The plan will be activated when an emergency affecting the campus cannot be controlled through normal channels or procedures.
The Emergency Operations Plan is under the operational control of the Director of Public Safety. When an emergency arises, the Director of Public Safety will direct all emergency operations from the Emergency Operations Center.
The College’s President, Acting President, or highest ranking member of the Department of Public Safety will be responsible for declaring a state of emergency and notifying the Director of Public Safety to activate and deactivate the Emergency Operations Plan when he/she deems it appropriate.
