The Heritage University Emergency Response team (ERT) identifies the University’s emergency planning, organizing, response, and procedures that guide how the campus deals with threats, hazards, and emergencies. The ERT also addresses how the University integrates and coordinates with other governmental entities and levels, when required.
The ERT addresses how the University will respond to the extraordinary events and disasters from preparation through recovery. The Emergency Response Team has been approved by the President’s Cabinet of Heritage University. The ERT is responsible for reviewing their plans on an annual basis and coordinating a revision of the plan, if necessary.
