Emergency Management Division

The University of Nebraska at Kearney is committed to the safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and visitors. As part of this commitment, the office of Emergency Planning and Management exists to coordinate planning, training, education, and preparation for possible emergency events.

This website is a resource in preparing for such emergency events. It lists preparedness information, emergency procedures and policies used to provide guidance for immediate response and the ensuing recovery process. It further lists information about the university communication methods.
