Emergency Planning & Preparedness

University Police coordinates emergency management planning for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Departments throughout campus contribute to the emergency operations plan by becoming responsible for their students.

The University has a website devoted to emergency information that you may find useful in planning for such an occasion and to use as a resource should an emergency occur. The website lists procedures and policies used to provide guidance for immediate response and the ensuing recovery process in the event of an emergency. The University will use this emergency website to post information as it becomes available.


Information that can be found on this website includes:

  • Severe weather related planning and response information
  • Natural disaster related planning and response information
  • Viral outbreak planning and response information
  • On-campus criminal emergency planning and response information
