Office of Emergency Management

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is responsible for creating the framework within which New College of Florida reduces vulnerability to hazards and deals with disasters.

This office is charged with the development and maintenance of a Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan, the purpose of which is to: coordinate and integrate all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other human-made disasters.

Emergency Management is also responsible for developing and maintaining New College’s Continuity Of Operations Plan (COOP); which is required by Florida Statutes Section 252.365. COOP planning helps prepare College units to maintain mission critical operations after any emergency or disaster.
