Statement on Table Top Exercise:

On Jan. 19th, from 8:30 a.m. through 12:00 p.m., various University of Missouri departments, along with the City of Columbia Fire Department and Joint Communications/Emergency Management conducted a tabletop exercise to test various parts of the campus emergency plan.

The tabletop exercise was conducted at the MU Police Department and specifically centered on communication during an emergency situation to ensure our community and media outlets are apprised of information during a critical incident.

The university would like to remind the community and the media to refer to the university’s official website during an emergency: MU Alert at for up-to-date, confirmed information during any critical incident that may occur on the university campus.  We also would like to remind faculty, staff, and students to update their emergency contact information to ensure they are contacted in the event of a campus emergency.
