Gavilan Emergency Response Plan
The Gavilan Joint Community College District Emergency Response Plan (ERP) is a guide to conduct an all-hazard response. It is designed to be flexible and adaptable in response to emergencies on campus. The plan describes specific authorities and best practices for managing emergencies ranging from catastrophic natural disasters, to fires, to active shooter incidents.
The ERP defines the scope of preparedness activity necessary to make it an effective operational guide. In order to become familiar with their responsibilities and acquire the skills necessary to perform required tasks, emergency response personnel must attend training sessions regularly. In addition, exercises provide a means to validate plans, checklists, procedures and evaluate the skills of emergency response personnel.
An effective emergency response hinges upon well-trained leaders, motivated and dedicated staff and responders who have invested in emergency preparedness knowledge, tactics and training.
