Office ofEmergency Management

The ODU Office of Emergency Management is responsible for building, sustaining, and continually improving a comprehensive emergency management program that promotes institutional resiliency, departmental readiness, and individual preparedness.

Through an inclusive, all-hazards approach, we facilitate prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery activities to allow the University to focus on its chief mission areas of academics, research, and community engagement.

This website provides helpful information, tips, and resources to promote preparedness and resilience among all members of the ODU community. Do your part to become #MonarchReady today!
