Emergency Response Manual

Campus Police have created an emergency response booklet. This booklet has been designed to provide a basic contingency manual for Eastern Arizona College administrators, faculty and staff members to plan for campus emergencies and unusual occurrences, should they occur. While the booklet does not cover every conceivable situation, it does supply the basic administrative guidelines necessary to cope with most emergencies and other occurrences.
