3. Department Level Emergency Planning
Departments and units can prepare for a variety of emergencies by developing a department/unit emergency response plan. A department/unit emergency response plan identifies a department/unit’s specific approach to emergencies and is meant to compliment the overall campus level campus Emergency Management Plan.
4. Faculty and Staff Members with Disabilities
If you have a disability, notify Human Resources immediately upon beginning work at Westfield State or transferring to a new location. If you have not done so before, make sure to do this now. Evacuation Assistance: Individuals who believe that they may need assistance, even if only on a temporary basis, from emergency personnel to evacuate campus buildings may request that assistance in advance by filling out and submitting the Evacuation Assistance form. If you need assistance leaving a building during an evacuation; notify a co-worker that you will wait by the nearest stairwell. Do not use an elevator during an evacuation. Also, call Westfield State University Police at 413-572-5262 from your cell phone and let the operator know of your exact location.
