Community Safety

As the primary Security and Emergency Response Team, Community Safety works collaboratively with the Response Team in support of effective response for all involved in both first responders and emergency response instances on campus. Community Safety responds to serious, unexpected, and often dangerous situations requiring immediate action; such matters may pose an immediate threat to health, life, property, environment with a high probability of escalating quickly/dangerously without quick intervention.
