While the University recognizes that it is vulnerable to a wide range of
naturally occurring or man-made emergency and disaster situations, it is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its faculty, staff, students, patients, and visitors. Emergency events can quickly and without warning disrupt operations and threaten life, property, and the environment. While the impact of these emergencies cannot be predicted, planning for operations under such conditions can reduce the impact of the emergency on our people, our facilities, our services, our mission, and our communities.
Preparedness Resources for UMDNJ Students, Faculty and Staff
The Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) focuses on campus- and University-wide responsibilities for responding to emergencies and disasters, with the aim of protecting lives, stabilizing the incident, and protecting property and the environment, among other things. The Department-specific Disaster Plan (DSDP) provides information to individual departments on what to do in the event of emergencies, such as a fire, utility outage, or hazardous materials spill.

Campus Emergency Planning Committees (CEPC)
There are three (3) Campus Emergency Planning Committees at UMDNJ: North Region CEPC, serving the Newark and Scotch Plains Campuses; Central Region CEPC, serving the New Brunswick, Piscataway, and Somerset Campuses; and, South Region CEPC, serving the Stratford and Camden Campuses.
As representatives of key policy makers on each campus, each CEPC functions as a steering committee and advisory group to the Office of Emergency Management and Occupational Health and Safety in the development, implementation, evaluation, and revision of the Emergency Operations Plan. The committees also assist in the development of an appropriate training and exercise program, promote safety and awareness throughout the University Community, encourage cooperative partnerships among the various components of the University, and enhance communication about emergency management and related topics.
Each Regional CEPC meets monthly; for more information, contact James Smith at 973-972-5949 or email@example.com.
- North Region CEPC: Second Tuesday of each month
- Central Region CEPC: First Wednesday of each month
- South Region CEPC: Last Thursday of each month
