Welcome to our new department and website. On July 1, 2018, Emergency Management became a department within the Division of Student Affairs. Previously, the emergency management program resided within Environmental Health and Safety. We will continue to offer the same range of services as before and invite you to take a look around.

In September, the University partnered with the McLean County Health Dept. to conduct a full-scale exercise simulating dispensing medications to 75,000 people in response to an Anthrax attack in Chicago. Students, faculty and staff participated in this large training event to help increase our capability to respond should a large outbreak occur.
In April 2018, we conducted a full-scale relocation and reunification exercise involving U-High parents, students and teachers and administrators. This first-of-its-kind exercise brought together 360 parents and students, 50 employees and 100 observers from throughout Illinois to test what happens after the major emergency occurs.
Emergency Management Staff presented a national webinar on our U-High Reunification Plan, Exercise and how we utilized our virtual emergency operations center application to support these efforts.
