Reporting and Communicating Emergencies

 

The person who becomes aware of the situation/incident should immediately report it to Campus Safety.

 

Campus Safety will respond to the report, assess the situation, and act to protect life and property.

 

If Campus Safety determines that there is no immediate danger or threat to others, they will notify the VPFA (who then tells the president) and the appropriate unit VP.

 

If Campus Safety determines that there is immediate danger or a threat to others, they will first notify the president and then the VPFA.

 

 

State of Emergency


Primary Communication: If the president declares a campus state of emergency, communication* to the campus community will occur in the following ways, initiated simultaneously by those designated below.

 

1. Email to all users – sent by the president or by the VPFA if the president is unavailable

 

2. Phone message to the entire campus system (using speaker phone capability wherever feasible) – sent by Campus Safety

 

3. Website message on the home page – posted by director of web site communications

 

4. Door-to-door communication via notification of building coordinators and resident assistants – initiated by Campus Safety

 

5. Optional Emergency Alert System - create a free account by clicking HERE.

 

* The content of this message will be determined by the president in consultation with Campus Safety. The president will have several, pre-crafted messages on hand to consider in the determination of an appropriate emergency message. Once notified, the VPIACR and EDMC will assist with the creation of subsequent messages.

 

Secondary Communication: The president and members of the president’s staff will inform other important constituencies about the emergency via telephone, email or other methods, as necessary. These groups include the leadership of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, neighbors who live near or adjacent to the campus, and the Board of Trustees.
