Emergency Preparedness and Response

Risk can inspire us to greater achievements, creativity, and the building of one of the world's great universities for the public good.

Each and every one of us is a risk manager. We each have a role and responsibility in sustaining a strong culture of safety awareness, knowledge, planning and practice to ensure the safety of ourselves and each person on our campuses.

Emergency Management at the University of Alberta assists you in managing and mitigating your risks so that you can go on to do great things!


Elements of Emergency Management

There are four critical elements of emergency management:

  1. Reduction
  2. Readiness
  3. Response
  4. Recovery
We refer to these elements as the "4 Rs." In an emergency, make sure you know What you should do and What the University does.
