The Emergency Operations Plan is designed to effectively coordinate the use of college and community resources in responding to all levels of campus emergencies and incidents. It is activated by the President of Green River College or any senior administrator present whenever such an emergency or incident reaches proportions beyond the capacity of routine procedures. The College will interact with local law enforcement, fire departments, and other county, state, and federal agencies, as necessary.
Priority 1 Objectives relate to preservation and safety of human life. Priority 2 and 3 Objectives relate to preservation of property and restoration of normal operations. Effort and action will focus on Priority 1 Objectives until substantially met. Priority 2 and 3 Objectives will be addressed as resources are available.
- Level 1: Disaster. A community, region or nationwide emergency that seriously impairs or halts the operation of the College.
- Level 2: Major Emergency. A serious emergency that completely disrupts one or more operations of the College and may affect mission-critical functions or life safety.
- Level 3: Minor Emergency. A localized, contained incident that is quickly resolved with internal resources or limited help and does not affect the overall functioning capacity of the College.
- Level 4: Minor Incident. Incidents that happen during daily operations that require minimal internal or external resources and do not affect the daily operations of the College.
