Building Emergency Action Plan

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A Building Emergency Action Plan (BEAP) is a plan to assist departments in preparing for building emergencies. The BEAP includes but is not limited to:

  • Campus and building specific emergency communication systems
  • List of building safety team members and/or emergency contact lists
  • Evacuation/Shelter-in-Place/Lockdown procedures
  • Concept of operations for various types of emergency situations (i.e. tornadoes and active threat/shooter)

The BEAP should incorporate any campus units, schools, colleges and/or departments that occupy a specific building. A Building Emergency Action Plan that includes all residents will help facilitate an effective response during an emergency situation. A copy of the building’s BEAP can be requested from the Building’s Safety & Security Representative (BSSR). For more information on the Building Emergency Action Plan and BSSRs.
