Building Emergency Plan

Purdue University requires a Building Emergency Plan (BEP) to be completed, and updated as needed for on campus buildings occupied by ten or more people.  Building Deputies and/or BEP Developers will complete these plans in conjunction with building specific safety committees.  These plans will include basic information as specified in the BEP Template. The template is designed to provide building occupants general emergency response recommendations.  The BEPs also include building specific procedures by detailing specific information about the building.

Our BEP's responsive design allows users easy access from a Desktop, Laptop, or Mobile Device.
