The UCI Emergency Management Program is managed by the Division of Finance and Administration (DFA) and serves as the administrative unit responsible for creating the framework within which the university can reduce vulnerability and sensitivity to hazards and cope with crisis and disasters.

The program takes an integrated approach to emergency management and continuity of operations that will assist the university with not only preparing to respond to crises and disasters, but in identifying opportunities to mitigate risk and prevent loss; and in establishing continuity of operations and recovery strategies for all types of events - regardless of size and complexity.

To continuously improve the resilience and readiness of the campus community and the ability to respond to and recover from natural and human-caused emergencies within the framework of the phases of emergency management – mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
