Emergency Services Mission
The mission of LBNL requires the Lab's Emergency Response Organization (ERO) to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all natural or man-made threats to the Lab and its premises in a safe, effective, and timely manner.
The objectives of emergency planning at LBNL are to:
- Save lives and minimize injuries
- Protect the environment
- Protect Lab property
- Return LBNL to normal operations as soon as possible
Philosophy of the Emergency Services Program: The LBNL General Employee Emergency Response Procedures EPIP is based on the philosophy that proper responses can only be attained if each individual reacts appropriately and knowledgeably in an emergency.
