Preparing for Emergencies

On February 16, 2016, key leadership from Harvard and the Cambridge Police Department participated in an emergency “tabletop” exercise to review and practice the University’s emergency plans and procedures. The exercise scenario focused on a hostile intruder situation which created the need to evacuate and lock down buildings around Harvard Yard.
