The University of Idaho is monitoring the threat of the Ebola virus relative to the UI Community. This memo
outlines the university’s response, which is consistent with recommendations of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to minimize the spread of the virus. While the general consensus is that the risk to the public remains quite low, members of our university community across the state should be aware of public health information about Ebola.
The Office of Public Safety & Security
consists of Emergency Management & Security Services, Environmental Health & Safety, and Risk Management. UI Public Safety is focused on creating and maintaining a safe environment for the UI Community and those who visit. We are engaged with internal and external stakeholders creating effective and efficient safety and security programs that enhance the living, learning, and working experience at the University of Idaho.
Public Safety and Security Organizational Chart
In the event of an emergency, our personnel, expertise, and resources are available to assist in the management and response of the incident. Legal and regulatory demands often overlap different areas requiring coordination among these programs. Issues related to infrastructure, research activities, occupant protection, and emergency response are elements of institutional safety that demand a well-coordinated effort by these programs.
