Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan
The Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) is a procedural document that contains disaster response plans and policies which assist the organization in applying the "All Hazards" approach in emergency management. The CEMP manual, which is available to Upstate University Hospital staff in both paper and electronic formats, contains detailed plans addressing the steps to be taken during specific emergencies. The plan defines the roles and responsibilities of different departments and personnel. It provides job responsibilities for the different members of the Incident Command Team, listed in job action sheets. It includes phone numbers and emergency contacts at Upstate and throughout the community. The CEMP guides response while providing the Incident Command Team with the information they need to make effective decisions during emergency situations.
