No to the 4-gas meter. 2000 students, private university. No EHS department
Yes to IC. Our campus safety office is very well trained. They (and I) participate in the university safety committee; this group handles EHS-type issues.

We do NOT have a 4-gas meter, but are working towards one (1,500 students, private institution)

I am conversant with the Incident Command System, however the college as a whole is not.

Our EH&S department is not really a department, just a few individuals who happen to participate. Sad but true, probably true at most institutions this size.

In relation to a project I am working on, I have 2 very specific questions:

1. Does your EH&S department have a functional 4-gas meter and know how to use it? What size institution are you?

2. Is your EH&S department conversant with the operational details of the Incident Command System?

Please reply to the list; long answers are NOT needed- I am trying to get a sense of the community as I develop a major proposal
