5.11 Emergency Procedures
Macalester College strives to establish a continuing state of readiness for the protection of College employees, students and visitors in the event of an emergency condition such as fire, severe thunderstorm, tornado, explosion, bomb threat or serious accident or illness. This plan is designed to protect lives and property, preserve the structural integrity of facilities and to ensure continuity of essential services.
Macalester uses an emergency notification system to send messages to the on-campus community in the event of an emergency where individuals need to take action or be aware of a developing situation affecting personal safety. Emergency notifications are sent via email and text message.
