In late 2010, following the creation of the Director of Emergency Management role, a strategic plan was outlined for developing an emergency management program at Tufts University. The plan was shared with senior leaders in spring 2011, and was provided to then incoming president Tony Monaco over the summer. While not an exhaustive accounting of emergency management activities, this status update summarizes significant achievements in the strategic plan laid out during the 2010-2011 school/fiscal year (FY2011).
Two industry standards, Emergency Management Standard by the Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP) and NFPA 1600: Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs, remain center stage as our references for best practices, and continue to shape program priorities.
