Emergency Readiness

All members of the McDaniel College community should be aware that the College has a plan under which it operates in times of emergency. The well-being of our students and campus community is and will continue to be the driving force of all activities in an emergency.

The plan provides guidelines for handling power failures, water shortages, weather emergencies and other contingencies. It provides a structured response to be followed in the event of emergency and was developed under the guidance of the College’s Safety Committee. The College has on hand the necessary supplies for use during an emergency. 

Professionals on staff are trained to supervise the campus’s response to these emergencies and communicate with all members of the community. Residence Life staff will provide directions in the residence halls. Various places on campus are available for commuter students, faculty or staff who may need to stay overnight. The McDaniel Web site at www.mcdaniel.edu will be periodically updated to keep parents and others, on campus and off, informed during the course of the emergency and for as long as it is practical. 

In the event of an actual emergency the campus community will be notified through the phone mail, email, and the McDaniel College Web site. Students should take responsibility for regularly checking their email. In order to receive campus-wide email announcements, students must have a College email account, which may be obtained from the Office of Information Services in the middle level of Decker Center. Instructions for automatic forwarding of email messages from a College account to another account are available from Information Services or on the College website. 

Please be assured we will communicate promptly with all members of the community in the event of new developments. If you have concerns or suggestions, please call or e-mail the Dean of Student Affairs at (410) 857-2242 or bgerl@mcdaniel.edu or the Department of Campus Safety at (410) 857-2202 or mwebster@mcdaniel.edu

Should an emergency arise, please be sure to: 

  • Stay calm. 
  • Use telephones and internet only for critical communication. During times of emergency, communication lines can easily become clogged. Reduce your electrical power consumption to a minimum; if you have a cell phone, use it sparingly. 
  • Follow directions of campus safety officers and residence life coordinators.
