  • Personal safety incidents (on/off campus) associated with weapons, violence, hostage-taking, active shooting, missing persons or perpetrator(s) at large
  • Medical emergencies involving pandemic or mass casualties
  • Utility failure, including gas, electrical or water
  • Major road closings/incidents disrupting safe passage to and from campus
  • Suspicious packages that would cause harm to people or property
