Welcome to MIT Emergency Management

MIT Emergency Management works closely with representatives and volunteers across campus to develop and implement  procedures and programs that ensure the continued operation of the Institute and to keep our community safe.

We are responsible for a professional, comprehensive emergency management and business continuity program for MIT that perpetuates resiliency across all sectors of the Institute.



MIT EMS is now part of our team!  MIT Emergency Management serves as the administrative department that manages MIT’s student-run ambulance service, MIT EMS.  We partner with the MIT EMS executives to ensure the service is running smoothly and serving the MIT community to ensure quick response to medical emergencies on the campus.  We are proud to have them as part of our team!
