Health & Safety Programs

Emergency Preparedness

At Stanford, planning ahead for emergencies is part of normal business planning and campus life, and all members of the Stanford community share a responsibility for preparedness.  An emergency can strike anytime or anywhere, and a disaster will affect everyone. 

The School of Medicine maintains an emergency plan and Satellite Operations Center to help protect our personnel; programs; and research and to support the overall campus emergency response and recovery efforts.

Each Department/Division within the School of Medicine maintains their own Emergency Response Plan which outlines strategies for protecting Department personnel and programs and methods of coordinating with the School of Medicine SOC.

All employees and students have a personal responsibility for knowing what to do before, during, and after an emergency to protect their safety and their work.
