Emergency Procedures

Emergencies can occur without warning and can present in many different ways. Preparing for emergencies on campus is a shared responsibility among students, faculty and staff so everyone should be familiar with the CCU Emergency Procedures. Instructions will be given by University and emergency personnel at the time of an incident. Remember, always use common sense. Emergency situations often evolve and there are exceptions to all guidance. The emergency procedures contained on this site are meant to be general guidelines and are not intended as a substitute for personal preparedness and emergency preparedness training.
