The tragedy at Virginia Tech has the largest college campus in Eastern Carolina stepping up security and scrutinizing their crisis management plan.
East Carolina University increased campus police presence around residence halls and classroom buildings as soon as the school's administration learned of the situation unfolding at Virginia Tech. The tragedy in Virginia has also prompted officials at East Carolina to rethink how they structured their current crisis management plan, which has been under evaluation for the past year.
John Durham, a spokesperson for ECU, tells WITN, should a major tragedy occur at East Carolina, the college would be able to respond efficiently, effectively and protect the welfare of the students.
