What We Do


Emergency Management is a part of Florida State University (FSU) Public Safety Department.  FSU Emergency Management is charged with the facilitation of the University's all-hazards emergency framework which drives preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation actions for a variety of emergency conditions. This is accomplished by a comprehensive approach that includes engaging internal and external stakeholders in plan development, training, exercises and outreach.  FSU Emergency Management coordinates the University's emergency alert and notification process and maintains constant situational awareness of conditions that could adversely affect the health, safety, and/or general welfare of students, faculty, staff, visitors, and families. 

 Emergency Management at FSU is governed by University Policy OP-E-5.
