The Blue Book Program is the cornerstone of PennReady. Blue Books are building-specific crisis management action plans (C-MAP) examining all emergency preparedness aspects of campus buildings in the pre-emergency environment. These books document the readiness of the Penn community’s response in an all-hazards approach to emergency management as well as providing vital systems information for emergency responders to manage a crisis event as it unfolds.
It is anticipated, that these books would be used by the building emergency team in assessing a building preparedness profile prior to an incident. The books could be used by the responsible parties for the building such as Facilities and Real Estate Services, Housing and Conferences Services, building and business administrators and the College House System deans and staff. The book could also be used by emergency response and recovery personnel to quickly mitigate and recover from an emergency incident affecting a building or buildings on campus.
