IVC Emergency Preparedness
Emergency preparedness planning at Irvine Valley College takes a proactive approach to mitigation, response and recovery from any number of crises or disasters that may impact the campus. IVC has an Emergency Operations Plan with a multi-hazard perspective that provides focus and direction for campus management responders. The plan is modeled on the California State Emergency Plan, which incorporates the requirements of the state Standardized Emergency System (SEMS) and the federal National Incident Management System (NIMS). When an emergency situation occurs on campus that is beyond the scope of public safety resources, the campus Emergency Operations Center (in the campus police station) can be activated as a hub of mutual aid response coordination. The Emergency Management staff, made up of trained personnel, will direct the campus response following contemporary procedures to avoid loss of life, prevent or minimize the destruction of property, and guide recovery operations.
