 Parking Arrangements during Emergencies or Disasters 

 

SPOTLIGHT

A. Emergency Management Administration Team (EMAT)
In the event of an emergency all members of the Emergency Command Team shall report to the Campus Incident Command Center (CICC). Upon reporting, all members are to park their vehicles in the staff parking lot at the main entrance of the Maintenance Complex adjacent to the CICC. This will be a protected lot with limited access to include only the members of the ECT. Access will be controlled by the University Police.

B. Campus Emergency Resource Team (CERT)
In the event of an emergency all members who have been requested to report to the CICC will park in the adjacent parking lot designated for the ECT. This lot is connected to the main lot in the Maintenance Complex and can only be accessed via that lot. This will be a protected lot with limited access to include only the members of the CERT. Access will be controlled by the University Police.

C. Deans, Department Chairs, Faculty, and Staff
In the event of an emergency all Deans, Department Chairpersons, Faculty, and staff who have been requested to assist in the emergency or assemble for any meetings or updates are required to park in the West Lake parking lot located adjacent to the main entrance on Kiester Road. This will be a protected lot with limited access to include only the members of the SRU faculty and staff. Access will be controlled by the University Police.

D. Emergency, Rescue Personnel, Vehicles and Equipment
In the event of an emergency, all emergency and rescue personnel will park their personal, work vehicles, and equipment in the East Lake parking lot adjacent to the Jack Critchfield Park. This will be a protected lot with limited access to include only members assisting emergency and rescue personnel. Access will be controlled by the University Police. Permits will be issued to the designated personnel by the EOC or his designate in the Police/Public Safety building.

E. Rescue, Military, and Media Helicopter parking
In an emergency or disaster the need may arise for the use of rescue, or military helicopters during the emergency. The local media outlets may also dispatch helicopters to the scene. The staging area for these helicopters will be the Band Practice Field across from the Thompson Stadium Complex. This will be a protected area with limited access to afford some protection for the helicopters during landing and take-off. Access will be controlled by the University Police.

F. Media
The size and scope of the emergency will dictate the amount of media coverage and space needed for parking.
All media will park in the lot adjacent to the Strain Behavioral Science Building (BSB), with the media overflow lot being housed at the East Lake parking lot. This will afford the media close access to the media briefing center at North Hall. The auditorium in BSB will serve as the alternate media briefing site.
