Welcome to the Department of Emergency Management and Operational Continuity (DEMOC), a division of Risk Management. DEMOC provides structure to guide Georgetown University and its stakeholders in mitigating, preparing, responding to, and recovering from emergencies and disasters. DEMOC also develops the university's emergency management plan, which facilitates the coordination and communication between these stakeholders.

Personal Peparedness

As members of the Georgetown University community, it is important to know the evacuation routes and assembly areas for your buildings. Also know how to shelter-in-place and defend-in-place. Georgetown University Marshals are great points of contact if you want to learn more about these emergency response procedures. You may also contact DEMOC at emergencymanagement@georgetown.edu to learn more about the information that is available to you and to put you in contact with the Marshals in your building.
