Emergency Operations Planning Step 4: Roles and Responsibilities

In this step congregations determine:

  • Who is responsible for initiating lockdown procedures? (primary and alternates)

  • Who is responsible for ensuring there is a process for announcing the presence of an active shooter, including notifying staff/volunteers in other areas of the building(s) (primary and alternate)

  • Who is responsible for providing information to first responders (primary and alternate)

    • This is particularly important if you have elected not to share this information with local first responders due to congregational factors such as sanctuary congregations.

  • Who is responsible for providing consistent and accurate information to authorities, staff, members, the UUA Region and national Communications office and the media after an incident?
