Who is responsible for managing emergencies on the UTC Campus?
Many people on campus are involved in responding to an emergency situation. Our first line of defense is our first responders. These responders include UTC Police, Chattanooga Police, Chattanooga Fire and Hamilton County EMS personnel. Campus resource allocation and decision-making is done by our Emergency Operations Center Team. This team is made up of all of the major functions on campus. The Emergency Operations Center Team receives strategic guidance from UTC's Executive Leadership Team.
Responsibility for coordinating all of these efforts is assigned to the Office of Emergency Services.
