University Emergency Management

University Emergency Management

Harvard has designed an emergency management structure that is scalable to the needs of the emergency consisting of Local Emergency Management Teams (LEMTs), Emergency Support Functions (ESFs), and a University-wide Crisis Management Team (CMT). The LEMT is called upon in all emergency situations to provide local leadership and implement University policies, where necessary. The schools and departments are supported by the ESFs, consisting of University central resources. In the event of a University-wide emergency, executive leadership is provided by the Crisis Management Team (CMT), led by the Executive Vice President.
