Preparedness at the University of Toronto

The foremost priority of the University in responding to crisis or emergency situations is the safety of students, faculty, staff, and affected community members. The University is committed to limiting and containing the extent of damage incurred during a crisis or emergency.

The University is also responsible for restoring order and mitigating the effects of the incident as soon as practicable by ensuring that the appropriate resources are assigned to manage the situation.

University Policies and Procedures

The University’s response to crises and emergencies is guided by several overarching documents, including:

  1. the Policy on Crisis and Routine Emergency Preparedness and Response; and
  2. the University’s Framework for Responding to a Crisis or Routine Emergency.

Divisions and Campuses also have a variety of resources and supports that bolster the University’s overall emergency preparedness initiatives.
