Emergency Communication Plan
Communication throughout an emergency is vital to the management of a crisis. In an effort to keep the University community informed, please look to the following during an emergency:
- Upon notification of an emergency or crisis, the Pacific Alert Team (PAT) will issue a Pacific Connect voice mail, e-mail, and text to those registered for the system. The PAT will also issue an announcement on all University IP phones. It is vital that all students, faculty and staff register for Pacific Connect in order to receive vital information during a crisis. To Register for Pacific Connect, please go to insidepacific.pacific.edu.
- E-news statements will be issued on a regular basis throughout the crisis. University emergency website (emergency.pacific.edu) updates will also be posted throughout the crisis as new information becomes available.
- Phone trees will be activated within various offices including Housing and Greek Life, Public Safety and Student Life. It is recommended that all Building Team Leaders create an emergency phone tree within their area.
- If cell phone and internet service is not working, information will be broadcast via campus and local radio stations and through the loudspeakers on each Public Safety vehicle.
