The Davidson College Emergency Response Plan establishes guidelines for campus-wide communication, service coordination and safety procedures in the event of emergencies such as fires, bomb threats, severe weather situations, long-term power outages, hazardous material incidents, or any situation that could threaten lives or safety within the College community. Also, it is a tool to keep the College community informed in the event of a death on campus, computer virus alerts, and community situations that affect the College.
The plan defines the Emergency Response Team and includes formation of an Incident Command Post to coordinate general emergency response and keep people updated and informed.
Designated Evacuation Assembly Areas have been established for each building on campus should evacuation become necessary.
I. General Conditions of the Emergency Response Plan
An audit of campus resources will be maintained and regularly updated by Physical Plant.
Physical Plant will construct and maintain information boxes for each building to include floor plans, utility and sprinkler system connections, rosters of staff or students living and working in the building, maps, keys, flashlights and batteries.
Cash reserves in the amount of $5000.00 will be kept on hand at all times in the Business Services office safe. When time and necessity warrant, additional cash reserves may be obtained in anticipation of an emergency situation (e.g. hurricane warning). Unused additional cash reserves will be re-deposited when the emergency situation is resolved.
Residence Life Office (RLO) will maintain information on area hotels including occupancy, amenities, and sales manager contact information. This list should be updated annually. RLO will maintain a stock of 50-75 mattresses and beds in case of emergency.
Physical Plant will negotiate preferred customer agreements with local contractors and equipment providers to provide services to the College before other customers in the case of a natural disaster affecting the larger community.
Copies of the Emergency Response Plan will be kept in the Davidson College Campus Police Department and available online on the Davidson College Campus Police web page.
The Emergency Response Plan will be tested and evaluated on a regular basis. The Director of Campus Police will coordinate this testing.
