The Centenary University Emergency Response Plan establishes guidelines for campus-wide communication, service coordination and safety procedures in the event of various emergency situations.

These emergencies include fires, bomb threats, severe weather situations, long-term power outages, hazardous material incidents, or any situation that could threaten lives or safety within the University community. Also, it is a tool to keep the University community informed in the event of a death on campus, computer virus alerts, and community situations that affect the University.

The plan defines the Emergency Response Team and includes procedures to coordinate general emergency response and keep people updated and informed.

Designated Evacuation Assembly Areas have been established for each building on campus should evacuation become necessary.
