Emergency Plans

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Broward College maintains a collection of emergency management plans which establishes the framework for an all-hazards approach to the several phases of emergency management.  All emergency plans are driven by operational concepts derived from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).



Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP)

The Broward College C​​EMP is the master operations document governing Broward College's ability to respond to emergencies, and to catastrophic, major and minor disasters on all campuses and facilities. The CEMP describes the basic strategies, assumptions, roles, and​ responsibilities and operational objectives which will guide the Broward College community to be as prepared as possible for the hazards that will most likely occur.​ 


Severe Weather Plan

The SWP specifically addresses incidents caused by weather and other natural causes and provides basic guidelines in planning for emergencies. It is intended to be a management-supported, documented, and cost-effective plan providing college-wide capability for organized preparation and timely recovery from a major unforeseen​ disruption caused by a hurricane, tornado, or other severe weather event. The SWP is update on an annual basis or as needed.​​


​Standard Operating Guidelines

SOGs are restricted to District/Campus Incident Management Team Members.

Standard Operating Guidelines have been developed for each campus and associated centers. The SOGs provide for a more customized all-hazards approach particular to each campus and its associate centers. Furthermore, SOGs develop guidelines for dealing with existing and potential incidents.​
