Emergency Planning and Response
Emergency Response Plan
The Emergency Response Plan is intended to establish policies, procedures and organizational structure for response to emergencies that are of sufficient magnitude to cause a significant disruption of the functioning of all or portions of the University. This plan describes the roles and responsibilities of departments, schools, units and personnel during emergency situations. The basic emergency procedures are designed to protect lives and property through effective use of University and community resources. Since an emergency may be sudden and without warning, these procedures are designed to be flexible in order to accommodate contingencies of various types and magnitudes.
Western New England University has a state-of-the-art notification system that is capable of sending emergency notifications and important messages about events at the University. The RAVE Alert is an EMERGENCY messaging system that allows you to receive notifications of school closure, delays, and security alerts to cell phones as text messages and to non-campus email accounts.
The system WILL NOT be used for general University announcements.
As part of the RAVE Mobile Safety services we've contracted with, we are now able to provide you with an app for your smartphone that will increase your safety options on campus.
