Blue Book Program

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.

Blue Books are used by the building emergency team in assessing a building preparedness profile prior to an incident. The books are 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.

How to View A BlueBook

Blue Books are located at every Penn owned building. To view the Blue Book specific to your building, contact your Building Administrator or your Building Emergency Coordinator.

Blue Book History

Following the direction of the University of Pennsylvania Crisis Management Plan, the Blue Book Program was developed and put into action in the spring of 2006. The program employed an eight phase implementation and maintenance approach. Phases I and II includes all campus buildings where people sleep (residential buildings, fraternities and sororities, and the Steinberg Conference Center); information for these phases was gathered and books completed during the 2006-2007 academic year. Phase III includes all school-related science buildings; this phase was completed during the 2007-2008 academic year. Phase IV includes all school-related non-science buildings and was completed in 2008-2009 academic year. Phase V includes center-related buildings not associated with a school; and was completed during the 2009-2010 academic year. Phase VI was a maintenance phase and phase VII, New Bolton Center, was completed during the 2010-2011 academic year. Phase VIII, Morris Arboretum, was completed during the 2011-2012 academic year.
