Emergency Action Plan

The Austin Peay State University Emergency Action Plan (EAP) is designed to provide basic information so that the reader can be better prepared in the event of an emergency or critical incident. The EAP is based upon the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators’ (IACLEA) model, which is rooted in the National Incident Management System(NIMS). The EAP is not designed to give definitive answers for every type of emergency. Each incident is unique and constantly evolving. Only those involved in the incident can make decisions that they believe are correct to ensure their own safety. The EAP provides resource material so that informed decisions can be made.

This summary cannot provide detailed information about every type of incident. For more detailed information, please consult the appropriate section of the Emergency Action Plan.
