The University of Houston-Victoria is vulnerable to impacts from tropical storms and hurricanes. Pre-storm preparation and post storm recovery as well as management of the campus during a storm is critical. The timing and implementation of any or all Hurricane Preparation/Response and Continuity of Operations (COOP) may be altered based upon facts and circumstances surrounding any individual hurricane event. The primary objectives of the plan are as follows:
- Ensure safety and protection of faculty, staff, students and visitors
- Mitigate damage and protect university assets
- Restore business and academic operations as quickly as possible
A guide to Hurricane Preparation and Maintaining Operations is in development.
