The Madonna University Public Safety Department will immediately notify the campus community in the event and confirmation of an emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of the campus community.
The decision to notify the community is determined on a case-by-case basis. The initial recommendation is made by Public Safety personnel on site. This recommendation can be made to any administrator, but it is typically made to the President or the Vice President for Finance and Operations. The person responsible for sending the official notification to the campus community includes, but is not limited to, the Director of Public Safety, Director of Marketing and Manager for Office Services. If the incident requires the larger community to be notified, information will communicated via text (Rave-Alert) email, website, university phone system and media outlets.
Through a joint effort with the Physical Plant Department, the Madonna University Public Safety Department will test the Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures annually and document the event. This information will include a description of the exercise, i.e. date, time and if announced or not announced. The documentation is stored in the Public Safety Office.
Further information can be found in the Madonna University Emergency Procedures Manual.
