Building Emergency Preparedness Plans (BEPPs) are detailed planning documents that describe
emergency and disaster responses for occupants of specific UAMS buildings. Each building's
BEPP includes documentation such as:
Building-specific evacuation and shelter in place procedures
Lists of assigned emergency coordinators, occupants, departments and equipment assigned to the
Locations of emergency supplies and automatic external defibrillators
Documents for creating BEPPs
The UAMS Emergency Management Department provides two files to help those responsible for
BEPPs—typically building or clinic managers—to build their plans:
The Template shows information your BEPP must contain, such as specific data for a list or roster. However, it does not dictate format. For example,
if you have a building equipment inventory or emergency coordinator roster in a spreadsheet, that’s fine. However, its formatting may come in handy
if you need to develop brand-new material.

When your BEPP is complete, contact Emergency Management Department at EmerMgt@uams.edu
to determine the best way to convey your plan file(s). A staff member will follow up to plan the next steps in the review and approval process.
