The Purpose of Emergency Management in a Sports Facility:
1. An emergency or a disaster may occur at any time of the day or night, weekend, or holiday, with little or no warning.
2. The succession of events in an emergency or disaster is not predictable; therefore, published operational plans, such as this plan, should serve only as a guide and a checklist, and may require modifications in order to meet the requirements of the emergency.
3. An emergency or a disaster may be declared if information indicates that such conditions are developing or probable.
4. Disasters may be community-wide. Therefore it is necessary for the College to plan for and carry out disaster response and short-term recovery operations in conjunction with local resources.
