Response Plan

Here you will find Kaufman Hall's Emergency Response Plan. This plan helps ensure the safety and well-being of individuals and establishes a foundation for emergency response within Kaufman Hall. The University of Oklahoma recognizes that emergency planning and emergency response is a continual process that will adapt to the nature of the emergency at hand. 

This Emergency Response Plan is designed to establish a framework to respond effectively and safely to an emergency. This includes assessing an emergency situation, coordinating a response effort and, most importantly, that individuals are informed, safely evacuated or sheltered and accounted for with reasonable accuracy. 

This general action plan applies to all students, staff and visitors to the building, and establishes seamless migration with the University of Oklahoma Emergency Response Plan. It incorporates response plans for tornadoes/severe weather, fire, armed subjects, suspicious package/bomb threat, gas leak, utilities failure, earthquake/explosion, etc.
