Ramsey Student Center Emergency Action Plans
BEAP stands for “Building Emergency Action Plan”
The basic emergency procedures outlined in this manual are to enhance the protection of lives and property through effective use of University and campus community resources. This plan has been designed for staff, students, and visiting guests to provide a quick reference during emergencies. Every employee should become familiar with its contents, and new employees should be trained to follow these procedures and the building evacuation plan for their respective departments. While these policies do not cover every conceivable situation, it does supply the basic guidelines necessary to respond and cope with the most common campus emergencies.
The plan will be activated in instances of fire, bomb threats, chemical spills, medical emergencies, inclement weather, and active shooter as directed by the President of the University, through the University Police Department and the Department of Recreational Sports. Any personal safety issues or concerns should be reported to appropriate staff members or the UGA Police Department.
Emergency Preparedness is everyone’s responsibility! The UGA Office of Emergency Preparedness developed a brief online interactive learning module with a campus community sense of preparedness in mind. Furthermore, all staff and students should be knowledgeable of the emergency notification system, UGA Alert.
