Emergency notifications are issued when there is a significant emergency or a dangerous situation occurring on the DSU campus that involves an immediate threat endangering the health or safety of students or employees. Emergency and dangerous situations may include but are not limited to fire, earthquake, flood, building collapse, weather-related situations, power outages, water emergencies, threat of violent crime, situations where the identity or location of a suspect is not known, Clery Act crimes, and crimes not covered under the Clery Act. Containing an emergency is the first priority, but the next priority is notifying the campus community. An emergency notification will be issued timely and accurately, taking into account the safety of the campus community. The only exceptions are if issuing an emergency notification would compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain or respond to the emergency, or otherwise mitigate the response to the emergency.
