The College “Alert” text message system, email system, phone, voicemail system, internet site and portal page are used for emergency mass notification. Mass notification will be done in a timely manner upon the confirmation of a significant emergency or a dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health and safety of students or employees, unless the notification at that time will compromise efforts to contain the emergency.
Emergency response and evacuation procedure information is located on the orange sign in each room on-campus and the evacuation signs in the hallways. A complete campus emergency plan is located on the campus intranet at:
(Prospective students and prospective employees may request a copy of the plan from Safety and Security.)
Mount Aloysius College tests the emergency plans at least annually by conducting drills. The emergency mass notification procedures are tested by using the same procedures for campus weather delays and cancellations which happens at least once a year. Small samples of telephone numbers are used for testing from the spring through the fall.
