3 Section 1: Plan Fundamentals 1.1 Introduction A) In accordance with Purdue University s Integrated Emergency Management Plan this document formalizes the University s emergency warning notification system designated as Purdue ALERT. Purdue is a large and complex institution, and people move about our campus freely. Despite advances in communication, there is no way to reach everyone instantly with a single message or system. B) The goal is to balance the need to provide warnings as quickly as possible with the need to ensure accuracy and provide helpful safety instructions to our campus community. C) Purdue ALERT has been designed as a multi-layered approach that will help spread the word quickly and accurately. The multiple communications layers will initially provide basic information to alert the community of a safety incident. Individuals should then take actions to protect themselves as public safety officials react to the safety issue. 1.2 Purpose Purdue ALERT is designed to notify as many people as possible as quickly as possible based on the specific incident circumstances. 1.3 Scope Purdue ALERT is designed to quickly provide warning information to faculty, staff, students and visitors on the West Lafayette campus. Marketing and Media personnel will provide more information to internal stakeholders (faculty, staff, students and visitors) and external stakeholders (local community) based on the specific incident s circumstances. 1.4 Laws and Authorities: A) Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or Clery Act; federal statute codified at 20 U.S.C. 1092(f), with implementing regulations in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations at 34 C.F.R B) The Higher Education Opportunity Act (Public Law ) (HEOA) was enacted on August 14, 2008, and reauthorizes the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). 3
4 1.5 Situation and Assumptions A) Situation: 1) Purdue University is located in West Lafayette, IN (Tippecanoe County). These guidelines are specifically designed for the West Lafayette campus. 2) The West Lafayette campus covers over 2500 acres and has 170 major buildings and 202 other facilities. Major buildings are those with 10,000 or more gross square feet. 3) The student population is nearly 39,000 people (8,702 who are international students) during academic sessions. There are over 15,000 faculty and staff members. 4) The West Lafayette campus is a community of over 50,000 faculty, staff, and students that must be prepared to respond to events and incidents similarly to other traditional mid-sized communities. B) Assumptions: 1) All Hazard Outdoor Emergency Warning Sirens are designed for outdoor use and building residents should not rely on them for initial incident notification. 2) A single communication system cannot reach all stakeholders in a timely manner. 3) Timely emergency notification relies on functioning, multiple communication systems. 4) Most emergency events will occur with little or no warning. 5) Level 1 incidents (reference IEMP for specific definitions) may overwhelm many of our systems and limit their usefulness. 6) Emergencies may require cooperation/coordination of internal and external departments, organizations, and agencies to include, university, city, county, state, and federal entities. 7) Basic services, including electrical, telecommunications, and other information systems may be interrupted and will probably limit some layers of our overall communication system. 8) Departments must develop internal processes to notify their employees of emergency incidents. 9) Periodic testing of Purdue ALERT and department processes are critical to ensure operational readiness and effectiveness of the notification systems. 4
5 Section 2: Purdue ALERT 2.1 Concept of Operations: A) The campus community will be notified by the University s emergency warning notification system if a major emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurs on or near campus, unless in the professional judgment of the responsible authorities, the notification will compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency. B) The major emergency or dangerous situation will normally be confirmed by PUPD or PUFD personnel prior to alerting the campus community. C) Purdue ALERT warning notifications are initially designed to warn Purdue faculty, staff and students by activating some or all Purdue ALERT layers. The notification may be expanded to the community through news releases, TV, radio, siren system, etc., based on the judgment of the Incident Commander or public safety official. D) In major incidents (normally level 1 or 2 emergencies), emergency warning may initially focus on one of the following two basic emergency warning notifications systems: 1) Fire Alarms mean to immediately evacuate the building and proceed to your Emergency Assembly Area. 2) All Hazards Outdoor Emergency Warning Sirens mean to immediately seek shelter (Shelter in Place) in a safe location within closest facility/building. (i) Shelter in place means seeking immediate shelter inside a building or University residence. This course of action may need to be taken during a tornado, a civil disturbance (such as a shooting), or a release of hazardous materials in the outside air. E) When individuals hear a Fire Alarm or the All Hazards Outdoor Emergency Warning Sirens they should immediately evacuate or go inside a building to a safe location, as applicable, or use any communication means available to find out more details about the emergency. They should remain in place until police, fire, or other emergency response personnel provide additional guidance or tell them it is safe to leave. F) Additional warning notifications and follow-up information will use other layers of Purdue ALERT. They are: 1) Text messaging system. (i) Purdue University faculty, staff and students should sign up to receive an emergency notification text message. Reference the Emergency Preparedness website or the following link to sign up for the text system. 2) Twitter Posts (i) Sign up on Twitter: Twitter account holders can follow to receive up-to-date information on campus emergencies. 5
6 (ii) Sign up using text messaging: Type "follow Purdueemergency" to number "40404." The number should confirm, and then texts will begin. 3) Desktop Popup Alert (i) Alert will be sent to the majority of University classroom & lab computers and display incident information on computers that are logged in. 4) Alertus Alert Beacons (i) Alert will be sent to the beacons that are installed in large classrooms. Beacons will alarm audibly for 10 seconds, flash and text alert will be available for 5 minutes. 5) An will be sent to all people with a purdue.edu address. 6) Purdue Home page ( and WL Campus Emergency Status page ( (i) 2.2 Objectives: Marketing and Media personnel will post additional information, as applicable, for campus-related emergencies to these pages. 7) The Boiler Television Emergency Alerting System will broadcast emergency information. 8) University Residences personnel will implement internal notification procedures to alert people in individual halls via their resident assistants, phones, and signage. 9) Marketing & Media personnel will work with the news media radio, TV, newspapers, and Internet to help spread the word, as needed. (i) M & M officials will determine which emergencies require the news media to be notified. A) Maintain multiple communications layers to disseminate information to all stakeholders as quickly as possible. B) Constantly evaluate new technologies and incorporate them into Purdue ALERT as funding allows. C) Test Purdue ALERT, normally twice a year and incorporate any lessons learned into the activation procedures. 2.3 Activation A) Most major emergencies or dangerous situations will be reported to the Purdue Dispatch Center who will dispatch PUPD/PUFD to investigate and confirm the emergency. If confirmed, PDC starts the notification process by notifying public safety officials. B) Activation of all or part of the overall warning notification system will be decided on by the Incident Commander and senior leadership. Each incident 6
7 will be evaluated based on incident specifics and life safety factors; a decision to make a timely warning/emergency notification will then be made. C) The Senior Director, Environmental Health & Public Safety (EHPS), Purdue Police Chief, or Purdue Fire Chief will normally direct Purdue ALERT activation. However, the responding Incident Commander may direct Purdue ALERT activation if immediate life safety issues exist. D) The initial Purdue ALERT notifications will normally use a pre-canned message that provides very basic information that is designed to immediately notify Purdue faculty, staff, and students. More detailed information will be included in subsequent notifications and posted on the Campus Emergency Status page. 2.4 More detailed information on all Purdue ALERT layers can be found in the plan appendices. 7
8 Section 3: Direction, Control, and Coordination 3.1 Responsibilities: A) The Incident Commander has the authority to activate all or part of Purdue ALERT. Figure 1, Emergency Warning Notification Flow Chart, outlines the emergency warning notification process. However, for most emergency incidents the IC will relay information to their respective PUPD/PUFD leadership who will determine Purdue ALERT activation. They will direct Purdue Dispatch Center to activate applicable Purdue ALERT layers and ensure Marketing & Media personnel are notified who then activates the other Purdue ALERT layers. B) Emergency warning notification decisions will be based on emergency levels and urgency of notification (life safety considerations). C) The decision to take action and initiate an emergency warning notification should be based on the severity of the emergency and the threat to life safety, as well as the time that is required to communicate with the most people possible. Figure 2, the Activation Hierarchy outlines the approval process for most situations. D) The person who initiates the emergency warning notification system should undertake this responsibility after careful consideration of the emergency and the threat to human life and safety. For example: 1) A tanker truck leaking a hazardous gas that is moving onto a campus requires immediate action to provide enough time for people outside to take shelter inside of a building. This type of emergency and the need for rapid notification requires the Incident Commander (probably first responding fire or police units) to take action as quickly as possible. The IC has the authority to activate Purdue ALERT. Purdue ALERT will be immediately activated. 2) A potential release of a hazardous gas does not have the immediacy of a release and the threat to life safety is less severe. The people who are initially notified would be able to move up through the hierarchy to a decision-maker who would determine the appropriate level and the type of emergency notification systems to activate. E) Figure 3, Methods and Timing of Purdue ALERT describes the systems that Purdue University may activate and the desired activation time for these systems. Activation of all or part of the emergency warning notification systems will be based on the specific incident. 8
9 3.2 Purdue ALERT Notification Guidelines A) Normally, all Purdue Alert layers will be activated for a level 1 incident. For other incidents, all layers except the all hazards outdoor emergency warning sirens will be activated. However, the Purdue ALERT activator may only activate certain layers based on the specific incident circumstances. These guidelines allow for the flexible use of communication layers to provide an emergency warning to our campus community. An Incident Commander or other individuals authorized to activate Purdue ALERT should have a thorough understanding of the various emergency warning notification system layers and activate only the ones that are needed to ensure the Purdue community is properly notified. 3.3 Call Center A) Marketing & Media staff maintain the standard operating procedures and checklist to activate a Call Center in their Crisis Communications Plan. The Emergency Preparedness Office will assist in checklist design and exercising their procedures. B) Determining when the Call Center will be activated is the responsibility of the Vice President for Public Affairs or the current senior staff person in Marketing and Media; Senior Director, Environmental Health & Public Safety; or the Dean of Students. 3.4 Preformatted Warning Notification Messages A) Attachment 1 provides examples of preformatted messages for use by the M & personnel and the Purdue Dispatch Center dispatchers. 3.5 Emergency Announcement Examples A) Attachment 2 provides script that can be adjusted by special event organizers to use if an emergency situation occurs. 9
10 Section 4: Training 4.1 Exercises A) When possible, Purdue ALERT will be used in campus exercises to provide training for activators; promote awareness for the Purdue community; and provide realism to exercise execution. 4.2 After Action Review Process A) When Purdue ALERT is activated an after action review will be conducted by the Emergency Preparedness Office. Activation procedures and text message system effectiveness will be reviewed. Lessons learned will be documented and incorporated into the Improvement Plan and used to improve the standard operating procedures. B) A Purdue ALERT activation chart will be maintained with all activations. A monthly report will be made to the Campus Safety & Emergency Preparedness Committee. The report will show the type of activation and overall number of activations for the year. 4.3 Testing A) Periodic testing is critical to ensuring Purdue ALERT is reliable and effective in reaching our stakeholders. Purdue ALERT will normally be tested at the beginning of each academic semester. At least one of the two tests must be conducted to comply with the Department of Education s campus safety & security reporting requirements..an After Action Report should be completed and lessons learned incorporated into fine tuning the overall system. 10
