Emergency Plans

First responders to incidents are usually NOVA Police Officers, as well as law enforcement and fire/EMS personnel from the municipality of the impacted campus. When multiple agencies respond, the agencies work together to respond and manage the event. The Crisis Communication Protocols provide specific information concerning the details of how NOVA manages communications during the emergency. 

Faculty and staff also provide leadership for students’ safe and efficient reaction to an emergency. The NOVA Emergency Action Plan provides faculty and staff with needed information in case of an emergency. The plan details who to contact in the event of an emergency and the procedures to follow for a variety of incidents.
