Campus Safety: Goal 2010

The Campus Life and Safety and Security Task Force has set Dec 1, 2010, as the goal for full National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliance of all postsecondary education campuses.

NIMS was developed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education to provide a consistent, nationwide approach that enables federal, state, local and tribal governments to work together to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from domestic incidents.

To assure the safety of Oklahoma’s students, faculty, staff and campus visitors, it is essential that all postsecondary institutions implement NIMS training, exercises and other activities necessary to self-certify that they are in compliance with the NIMS objectives. The process will improve the relationship between institutions and community public safety partners and significantly enhance each institution’s ability to deal with emergency situations.
