Emergency Management

EH&S works with other Harvard groups to coordinate emergency mitigation, planning, preparedness, response, and recovery efforts. Our partners include the Harvard University Police Department, Harvard Public Affairs & Communications, and Harvard University Health Services.

We directly support Harvard schools and departments in:

  • Planning for and responding to emergencies emphasizing protecting the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
  • Reserving academic and intellectual capital.
  • Protecting vital infrastructure and other physical assets.
  • Restoring Harvard's normal operations as quickly as possible.
