Campus Wide Exercise

UTC conducted a campus wide emergency exercise in October 2012. An emergency exercise is a simulated disaster that allows UTC to test equipment, personnel, plans and procedures to determine strengths and weaknesses. This process allows UTC to enhance their ability to plan, prepare, respond and recovery from campus emergencies. Watch the video HERE.
