Penn State Greater Allegheny has begun working on an Emergency Operations Plan and a Business Continuity Plan. The University contracted Beck Disaster Recovery (BDR) to develop the plans for University Park and all campuses. The Emergency Operations plan will outline actions that should be taken for various emergencies ranging from loss of electricity, water, or natural gas, severe weather related emergencies, bomb threats to an active shooter on campus.
Another plan in development is the Business Continuity Plan. The plan outlines the steps to get the campus up and running after an emergency. It prioritizes the mission essential tasks and who should complete them. It also identifies the time frame within which mission essential tasks should be completed. The plans are to be completed by this summer.
