Management

The UCSB Department Emergency Action Plan (DEAP) has been designed to meet the requirements of the Emergency Action/Fire Prevention Plan required by Cal-OSHA, (Title 8, Sections 3220 and 3221.) In the event of a Cal-OSHA visit, your customized plan should be available to them for review. Likewise, all department personnel have the right to see this document upon request.

The Campus Emergency Operations Plan, as opposed to your UCSB Department Emergency Action Plan is intended to provide a framework for dealing with campus-wide emergencies. It specifies the composition of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) staff and identifies the basic functions and relationships that certain departments have in a major emergency. If your department is identified in the Campus Emergency Operations Plan, you will have to coordinate the development of your emergency response procedures with other departments.
