Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan

Purpose

The Miami Dade College (MDC) Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) is designed for use by the entire college community. The CEMP is designed to protect lives and property through effective use of college, local, state and federal resources. The CEMP establishes standard operating guidelines, based on existing policies and procedures, for the response to an emergency impacting the College. The CEMP describes the emergency management roles and responsibilities of the entire college community and provides a strategy to be prepared as possible for the most likely hazards. Since an emergency may be sudden and without warning, the CEMP is intended to be flexible in order to accommodate contingencies of various types and magnitudes. The MDC CEMP does not limit the use of good judgment and common sense in matters not foreseen or covered by the elements of the plan.

Scope

The CEMP outlines the mitigation/prevention, preparation, response and recovery actions of MDC personnel and resources for all-hazards that could negatively impact MDC. The CEMP incorporates the use of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) to facilitate interagency coordination between responding agencies and is consistent with the Miami-Dade County CEMP, State of Florida CEMP, and National Response Framework (NRF). MDC continuously collaborates with local, state and federal emergency response agencies in the development, implementation and maintenance of the MDC CEMP.

Miami Dade College “In Case of Crisis” Smartphone/Tablet application

Purpose

Although MDC has a thorough Emergency Management Plan, the reality is very few employees, faculty, and students have it readily available when an actual crisis occurs. As a result, individuals may often panic and respond in a manner that jeopardizes their own safety and the safety of others. Today, over 120 million people in the U.S. own and operate a smartphone and/or tablet device. Situational based emergency procedures and instructions are available and accessible when and where you need it; potentially saving lives, protecting resources and mitigating the effects of a crisis.

Scope

The “In Case of Crisis - Education” app is a FREE service offered to all MDC students, faculty, and staff. Once the app is downloaded and the plan is installed, you will have unlimited access to all of our MDC emergency procedures, even when cell service is interrupted.
