LARAMIE, Wyo. — More than 150 University of Wyoming administrators and staff members participated in a review of the university's emergency response plan.

The plan is a basic guide for providing a response system to UW faculty, staff and students for major emergencies that may threaten the health and safety of the campus community.

Emergencies can include weather events, fires, chemical spills, civil disturbances and other situations.

UW Police Chief Mike Samp said the review is part of the university's ongoing commitment to improve safety on campus.

Samp says the university is well prepared for an emergency but does not want to become complacent in light of some of the national events that have occurred recently.
