Upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on campus an emergency notification will be issued to the campus community. Incidents such as a serious gas leak, hazmat spill, tornado warning, etc., could warrant the use of this protocol. For example, receiving these alerts and messages could keep you from driving to campus only to find that a power failure has closed the campus. It should be noted that unlike the timely warning requirement, an emergency notification is not restricted to only Clery Act crimes.
Upon confirmation of a crime by University Police, a campus-wide timely warning will be issued to all students and employees. The intent of a timely warning is to aid in the prevention of similar crimes by helping members of the campus community protect themselves. The Clery Act requires a timely warning be issued for the following Clery crimes: arson, aggravated assault, burglary, criminal homicide, dating and domestic violence, motor vehicle thefts, robbery, sexual assaults, stalking and hate crimes.
The methods of communication may include the Smart Notice Emergency Notification System, alert and warning siren system, university-wide emails, online updates via website, on-campus announcement television, on-campus posted signs, or coordinated use of public media outlets and public address systems.
