UW Emergency Readiness Committee on Pause (1/6/22)

ERC Committee “on-pause” until further notice

Effective January 7, 2022, all activities and meetings of the UW Emergency Readiness Committee have been suspended indefinitely.  UW senior leadership is expected to charter a new Emergency Management Planning Committee (EMPC)  to assist the UW departments and units in developing and implementing  plans and activities that will enhance the University’s overall disaster resilience posture.

(01/06/22)  Statement from ERC Executive Sponsor, Vice President Lou Cariello:  “I’d like to officially announce today that…the emergency readiness committee is going to be on a pause.  After today’s meeting the intent will be to work on modifying and aligning the effort that we take in the ERC to align with the campus safety organization that will be redesigned re-imagined in the future.” All current and past ERC members were thanked for their service.

Information on the future of the ERC and the new EMPC committee will be posted on this webpage as it becomes available.
