If a situation arises on or around campus, including
weather-related events that could potentially threaten the health or
safety of Rosemont community members, senior administrators of the
College and members of Public Safety are immediately summoned as part of
Rosemont's crisis response procedure. This group determines the
appropriate actions to be taken, using Rosemont College's Emergency
Preparedness Plan as its basis and guideline.
Campus advisory action may include:
- Deployment of Public Safety officers.
- Engagement of law enforcement officials, if appropriate.
- Cancellation of classes.
- Patrol of the campus perimeter.
- Closing of roads and entrances onto campus.
- Lockdown of campus buildings and residence halls.
- Evacuation of campus buildings and residence halls.
