Emergency Management

Emergency Planning


The University of Wisconsin-Platteville places the safety and well-being of students, employees and the public at the top of its priorities. The campus is working to improve safety and emergency planning in the wake of the tragic events at universities and schools around the country.  Education, training, and testing emergency procedures and crime prevention techniques are UW-Platteville's first priority and our best chance for eliminating or minimizing risks to the safety of students, employees, and guests at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Prevention includes observation, awareness, risk assessment, planning, and reporting.
