Emergency Action Plan

Prepare an emergency action plan (EAP) 

All campus departments and their affiliated sites are required to prepare an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) - UC READY. This plan outlines your department’s preparedness measures and priority actions during emergencies, from small incidents to citywide disasters. Your EAP should include: 

  • Personnel roster  
  • Inventory of emergency supplies  
  • Evacuation plan and exit routes 
  • Special staff assignments/needs list 
  • Location of your emergency evacuation assembly areas 
  • Critical functions, data or research to be protected 
  • Worksite emergency coordinator and floor wardens 
  • Alternate floor wardens and emergency coordinators to serve in absence of primary floor wardens and emergency coordinators 
  • Emergency communication and after-hours notification plan 
  • Campus emergency phone locations 

The EAP can be organized by worksite (e.g., office, lab), by Division or Department and by floor or building. You are encouraged to collaborate between neighboring workspaces on the same floor to develop a 'Whole Building" EAP. 

  • EAPs are completed using the UC Ready application that can be accessed via MyAccess  
  • New UC Ready users should contact [email protected] for a new account  
  • For UCSF Health EAPs, please contact Francine Sneddon  

UCSF EAPs are due annually during the month of August and NO LATER than August 31. EAPs are valid for one year only and can be updated throughout the year as necessary by submitting an updated EAP.  

Contact Rowena Rodarte-Do, Mission Continuity Program Manager, at [email protected] to have your EAP reviewed and submitted.
