At Least It Wasn’t a Football Weekend: The Notre Dame Tunnel Fire


This ECAR research bulletin discusses how the University of Notre Dame created and refined its incident response plan, how the utility tunnel fire of August 28, 2009, played out within that framework, the challenges of the subsequent week-long recovery phase, and how lessons Notre Dame learned can be applied at other colleges and universities.
