EHS&EM in the process of revamping the Building Coordinator Program. We are working with one building at a time to implement the Building Emergency Team Program. Debi Trivette is managing the Building Emergency Team Program. You may reach Debi at firstname.lastname@example.org or x6120. As we are working our way through campus, buildings will remain under the Building Coordinator Program until the building has been placed into the Building Emergency Team Program. When a building is placed in the Building Emergency Team Program, the Building Emergency Team will work with Debi to create a new Building Emergency Action Plan, be trained on the EAP and information resources will be provided to them.

Buildings that have been placed in the Building Emergency Team Program:
Founders Hall May 2016
Chapell Wilson Hall and Valborg Theatre June 2016
