Planning for emergencies requires an integrated approach to the management of programs and activities for all four phases of Emergency Management (preparedness, response, recovery, mitigation) and all types of emergencies and disasters (both natural and man-made).
As defined in the Chancellor’s Office Executive Order No. 1056, the purpose of the executive order is to maintain an emergency management program on each campus that will be activated when a hazardous condition or natural disaster reaches or has the potential for reaching proportions beyond the capacity of routine operations.
This executive order supersedes and modifies Executive Order No. 1056 in response to recommendations of the emergency preparedness system wide audit 09-43.
