Information Technology Emergency Response Plan

William & Mary

The Emergency Response Plan establishes the policies, procedures, and organizational structure for response to emergencies that cause a significant disruption to all or portions of the College. The plan describes the roles and responsibilities of emergency management teams as well as departments, schools, units and individuals during emergency situations. As emergencies are often sudden and without warning, these procedures, while providing guidance, are designed to be flexible in order to permit the College to respond to any given situation. Read the Emergency Response Guide for faculty, staff and students.

The plan includes protocols to address specific types of emergencies. These protocols are meant to guide the stabilization of and recovery from an incident and include emergency instructions and references in a concise format for use by individuals designated to manage the response while preserving resources.

The plan outlines the preparation of, response to, and recovery from emergency events. It is consistent with established practices related to emergency response actions, incorporating the National Incident Management System (NIMS) to facilitate coordination and interoperability among responding agencies. The College will cooperate with federal, state, and local emergency management agencies and other responders in the development, implementation, and execution of its emergency response plans. Nothing in this plan should be construed in a manner that limits the use of good judgment and common sense in matters not foreseen or covered by the elements of the plan.

This plan supports the College's intent to respond to any emergency situation in a safe, effective, and timely manner. The College's mission in the event of an emergency is, in order, to:

  1. protect human life;
  2. preserve health, safety, and basic care;
  3. protect College assets;
  4. maintain College services;
  5. assess damages; and
  6. restore general campus operations

The plan is promulgated under the authority of the President of the College. All decisions concerning the discontinuation of College functions, cancellation of the classes, or cessation of operations, rest with the President or his designee.

John Fulton - Intelligence Networking & Analysis
On the morning of September 11th 2001, Mr. Fulton and his team at the CIA were running a pre-planned simulation to explore the emergency response issues that would be created if a plane were to strike a building. Little did they know that the scenario would come true in a dramatic way that day. Information is the most powerful tool available in the homeland security effort. At the core of every initiative currently underway to protect our country and its citizens is the challenge of getting the right information to the right people at the right time

FACT CHECK: Obama disowns deficit he helped shape
"That wasn't me," President Barack Obama said on his 100th day in office, disclaiming responsibility for the huge budget deficit waiting for him on Day One. It actually was him - and the other Democrats controlling Congress the previous two years - who shaped a budget so out of balance.
And as a presidential candidate and president-elect, he backed the twilight Bush-era stimulus plan that made the deficit deeper, all before he took over and promoted spending plans that have made it much deeper still
