Emergency Planning & Violence Prevention

Emergency Response Teams

Introduction

Emergencies can occur at any time without warning. Being prepared to handle emergencies, disasters, accidents, and injuries is essential. This is an individual as well as an organizational responsibility.

This information is intended to be used by the faculty, staff, and students of Lewis University as a quick reference in cases of emergency. All members of the University community should become familiar with its contents.

In addition, there are detailed evacuation plans and shelter diagrams in all buildings and rooms to give direction in the event of an emergency.

The more prepared you are, the better you will be able to respond in an emergency. Any questions you may have should be directed to Campus Police at extension 5222.
