Working With Outside Resources
Emergencies may warrant the interface, coordination, and use of other agencies at the county, State, and Federal level. Agreements are in place between Purdue University emergency responders and all local agencies for police, fire and medical aid. Other businesses may also provide support services; these include but are not limited to Verizon, the records recovery companies and companies that specialize in disaster cleanup. Purdue University can engage directly with these companies for assistance. The local American Red Cross acts cooperatively with State and local governments and other private relief organizations to provide emergency mass care to persons affected by disasters.
