Timely Notification/Emergency/Crisis Response
Alaska Pacific University has incorporated the national standard 30 minute response when notifying the campus community of possible emergency/crisis incidents on campus. When circumstances warrant, the Dean of Students Office, Campus Safety and/or the Department of Campus Life issue special crime alerts. Depending on the circumstance, alerts are distributed campus-wide or to selected populations (i.e., residential students). Alerts may be distributed in several different ways: posting on campus bulletin boards, building entries, or other public places; fax, voice mail, or e-mail transmissions to University staff and students; announcements in classes; or official press releases.
The Emergency Response Team, meet during the academic year to discuss, plan, and address either current or potential incidents which may affect APU’s campus.
The group also meets to discuss campus safety awareness, concerns, and recommendations for improvement.
