Emergency Management Information
The Durham campus of the Nicholas School has recently convened an Emergency Management Team to develop an emergency management plan. The Marine Lab has an independent Emergency Management Team and emergency management plan that serves the Beaufort campus. The two teams will work together to ensure consistency and coverage for both locations.
The Emergency Management Teams will work closely with Duke University Police Department and the Nicholas community to develop response plans, education opportunities, security reviews and building safety assessments.
Our goal is to make sure the Nicholas community continues to be a safe and welcoming environment by maintaining awareness, safety practices and the knowledge of how to respond. As we continue to work through the development of this plan, we want to inform you of some measures you can currently take as well as pass along some other helpful information.
