Emergency Management

What is Emergency Management?

The Department of Emergency Management and Environmental Health and Safety is responsible for the coordination of emergency response and continuity planning. The safety and security of the Pace community is a top priority. Our goal is to reduce Pace University’s vulnerability to hazards and to build resiliency to disasters.  


Our Vision

We seek to promote resiliency to disasters through emphasis on preparedness trainings, awareness programs, and effective plans. The Department of Emergency Management and Environmental Health and Safety fosters a culture of partnerships with internal and external communities to improve capabilities to successfully respond to emergencies and disasters.


Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Emergency Management and Environmental Health and Safety is to mitigate, prepare, respond, and recover from any major emergencies or disasters through a comprehensive, progressive, risk-based all hazards approach. We seek to protect the Pace University community by integrating leadership and support necessary to build a resilient Pace and enhance our capabilities to protect property and save lives.


Our Objectives

  • Provide emergency management oversight, coordination, and situation awareness to a broad and diverse group of University partners.
  • Employ an integrated all-hazards risk based approach for mitigation, response, continuity of operations, recovery, and preparedness planning.
  • Create a “culture of preparedness” among the students, faculty and staff by improving awareness and comprehension of what to do before, during, and after major emergency and disaster incidents.
  • Develop and implement strategies to achieve enhanced emergency communications capabilities.
