Responding to an Emergency
Franklin & Marshall has a comprehensive Emergency Response & Crisis Management Plan that will be activated in case of a crisis situation. Please note: viewing The Plan requires authorization using your Franklin & Marshall NedID and password. You are urged to become familiar with the information contained herein.
In the event of a crisis, or a when a mass notification is deemed necessary, a team of senior campus leaders initiates this dialog of information sharing. The Crisis Management Team's primary focus is to provide leadership during a crisis or ongoing threat. The Vice President for Finance & Administration will serve as the Coordinator of the Crisis Management Team (CCMT) with the Director of Public Safety as the coordinator's advisor.
The College utilizes a range of tools to communicate with the campus community about emergency or crisis situations. The specific choice of tool depends upon the severity of the circumstance. Franklin & Marshall's Emergency Alert is an instant, mass notification system powered by Rave Mobile Safety. Please learn more about and sign up for the Rave Alert System. No advertisements or non-emergency alerts will be sent to you. You must register in order to receive alerts.
Another communication tool is the LiveSafe mobile app that F&M is providing to all students, faculty, and staff for free. The app provides a quick and convenient way to communicate directly with Public Safety officials, enhancing your overall safety and allowing Franklin & Marshall Public Safety to better protect you. You must download the app to utilize all of the features. Instructions can be found here.
