With their continuing service, Moravian College has progressed throughout the past years. Its crime rate has decreased dramatically and students, staff, faculty, and residents of the college community have become more educated about problems of crime. The members of the Department of Campus Safety and Police want you to remember to PREVENT:
Prevention is the most effective means of eliminating crime. Secure your valuables, keep residence hall doors locked, be aware of your environment.
Record the description of suspicious persons. Do not attempt to question or restrain them yourself.
Escape is the primary objective if you become involved in a dangerous situation. Do not attempt a physical confrontation if escape is possible.
Value your safety and the safety of others.
Employ common sense and awareness in your day to day activities. Remember many victims of crime said, "It can't happen to me.
Notify the campus police at once if you are the victim of a crime or if you witness one.
Telephone extensions for the Campus Police: 861-1421, 861-1422, and 861-1465 or 911 on campus for an emergency.
Emergencies and Emergency Preparedness
Emergencies are reported through the e2Campus system, on the campus network, and on AMOS. Fortunately, the College is not experiencing a crisis at this time. However, if there is a crisis, important information will be posted here, such as announcements, news releases, and instructions to students, parents, employees and the media.
Moravian College has an Emergency Response Plan, designed to provide contingency procedures for Moravian College administrators to follow in the event of campus emergencies. While the Plan does not cover every conceivable situation, it does supply the basic administrative guidelines necessary to cope with most campus emergencies.
Only members of the Emergency Response Team have copies of the full emergency response manual. Since it is impractical to establish policies and procedures to cover every aspect and variety of emergency situation, the directions are advisory only. The individuals directly involved at the outset of the emergency must exercise their judgment and discernment to the best interests of all concerned. The procedures as outlined are intended to minimize potential risks to students, college employees, the public, and property, while affording prompt reaction to restore campus order, and facility operations. All students, faculty, and employees should apply to general safety practices and precautions at all times to minimize the potential for emergencies and provide continued efficient, economical operations. In case of emergency, staff and faculty are to take appropriate, immediate action and then make direct contact with the director of campus safety by calling 911 from any campus phone, or 610-861-1421 from off campus or from a cell phone. Do not leave a message. If you are for some reason unable to reach campus safety, then please contact an appropriate vice president at the college.
If you have questions about Moravian College’s Emergency Response Plan, please contact George Boksan, director of campus safety at (610) 861-1421.
If you have questions about crisis communications, please contact Michael Wilson, director of public relations, at (610) 861-1365.
