The Claremont Colleges Emergency Management Program
Emergency Management protects The Claremont Colleges communities by coordinating and integrating all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from the effects of man-made and natural disasters.
Mitigation efforts attempt to prevent hazards from developing into disasters altogether, or to reduce the effects of disasters when they occur.
Preparedness is a continuous cycle of planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising, evaluation and improvement activities to ensure effective coordination and the enhancement of emergency management capabilities.
The Response Phase involves the actions taken to save lives and prevent further damage to facilities and infrastructure, and stabilize the situation. Response is putting preparedness plans into action. Response activities may include damage assessment, search and rescue, fire fighting, and sheltering and caring for victims.
The Recovery Phase involves the actions taken to return The Claremont Colleges to normal operations following a disaster.
