Our Preparedness Plan
Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi operates under an Emergency Management Plan. Appendix 4 of the Emergency Management Plan is the Hurricane/Tropical Storm Defense Plan. The Hurricane/Tropical Storm Defense Plan is designed to safeguard students, faculty and staff and to protect campus facilities in the event of a hurricane or tropical storm. The plan covers responsibilities and courses of action for students, faculty and staff throughout the hurricane season. The University utilizes an Incident Command System, where administrators and others throughout the campus continually monitor tropical disturbances, tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes to determine if there is the likelihood of an impact to the University. In an emergency, these individuals, through this structure, will engage all necessary procedures to support the University’s people and facilities.
