Disaster and Emergency Response Plan | Mount St. Joseph University

The objective of the Mount St. Joseph University Disaster and Emergency Response Plan is to provide the maximum practical protection for students, faculty, staff, and visitors in the event of a crisis. 

Natural disasters, such as floods, severe storms and tornadoes, and man-made disasters which can result from chemical accidents, falling aircraft, fires, explosions, etc., are potential hazards for which we must be prepared. We must also prepare for a man-made crisis, which can come in the form of weapons on campus and bomb threats.

In addition, MSJ University recognizes its responsibility to immediately notify the campus community upon confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on the campus.  An “immediate” threat encompasses an imminent or impending threat.  Confirmation of an emergency situation is ordinarily the responsibility of the MSJ Police Department in consultation with appropriate internal and external constituencies as appropriate to the emergency.  Most, but not all emergency response, will involve the coordination of services by Delhi Township Police and Fire and may also involve Hamilton County SWAT and other agencies as required through the mutual aid agreement with all police agencies in Hamilton County.

MSJ University Police Department and Communications staff will collaborate to determine the content of the message and will use some or all of the systems described below to communicate the threat to the MSJ community or to the appropriate segment of the community if the threat is limited to a particular building or segment of the population.  MSJ University Police and Communications staff will, without delay and taking into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification and initiate the notification system, unless issuing a notification will, in the judgment of the first responders (including, but not limited to MSJ Police, Delhi Township Police and/or Fire and Emergency Medical Services), compromise the efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

The MSJ Communication Department, in consultation with the President and MSJ Police Department will determine the information to be disseminated outside of the campus community including content and method of dissemination appropriate to the emergency.  Once determined, the dissemination is the responsibility of the MSJ Communication Department.

To meet these objectives, we will instruct and prepare staff, faculty and students in the appropriate and safe procedures to follow in the event of a campus crisis through various channels of communication, including e-mail, MountSafe, MSJ phone system, social media, chapel bells and other available sources. The occurrence of a crisis will require prompt response from all members of the campus community and specifically, personnel with assignments included in this plan. Since no two emergencies will be the same in nature, scope or magnitude, it is necessary for the University’s plans to be basic, flexible and subject to modification as the need arises. Modification will be at the discretion of the President, Chief of MSJ Police Department or civil authority. However, in any emergency, the following priorities shall apply:

• Protection of life.
• Prevention of injury.
• Protection of property.
• Preparation of the campus for extended stay or evacuation.

Every student, faculty member, staff member and visitor at Mount St. Joseph University should be as prepared as possible for emergency evacuation of campus buildings.

This is particularly important for people with disabilities, for whom the environment becomes even more difficult during and after an emergency than for the non-disabled. If you are a person with a disability (mobility, vision, hearing, speech, or cognitive), you are encouraged to contact the Director of the Learning Center & Disability Services at (513) 244-4524 or Meghann.littrell@msj.edu, The Learning Center, Room 156 Seton Center). The Director will work with you and the MSJ Police Department to develop a personal safety plan that will help increase the probability of a smooth evacuation in an emergency.  Temporary disabilities impacting mobility or emergency response should be reported to the MSJ Police Department.

Following every disaster or emergency, a full review of all response procedures will be conducted with members of the Emergency Response Team and other individuals and agencies involved in the response.

Who Declares a Campus Emergency?
Campus emergencies may only be declared by the following persons:

  • University President:
    The President of Mount St. Joseph University is primarily responsible for declaring a campus emergency. In questionable cases he/she may consult with other department heads, civil authorities and the Chief of MSJ Police Department to assist in assessing the need to declare an emergency. In the absence of the President, his/her designee will act on behalf of the President. In a situation where neither is available, the Chief of MSJ Police Department shall declare the emergency. Unless an obvious and immediate emergency exists, consultations should be utilized in the decision making process.
  • Civil Authorities:
    Delhi Police, Delhi Fire, or other local, state or federal government agencies may declare an emergency that would involve the campus.

All faculty, staff and students are responsible to sound the appropriate alarm or notification upon discovering a critical situation. A critical situation includes events such as a fire, violent act, observation of a person on campus with a gun, or hearing/observing gun shots on campus.

Common Terms in Emergency Response

Building or Room Evacuation
A building or room evacuation may be the result of a fire, chemical leak, power outage, or any other event which requires leaving a building.

Campus Evacuation
A campus evacuation will occur if the campus is deemed unsafe and uninhabitable by civil authorities or by the administration. This will usually be the result of an extensive campus fire, aircraft crash, chemical threat, or local police/fire department action.

Evacuation of Persons with Disabilities
Visual Impairments: Inform the person of the nature of the emergency and offer to guide the person to the nearest exit.

Hearing Impairments: Alert the person that there is an emergency situation by using hand gestures or by turning the light switch on and off. Verbalize or mouth instructions, or provide the person with a short note containing instructions.

Mobility Impairments: Since elevators should not be used, individuals who can walk may be able to evacuate themselves with some assistance. For individuals unable to walk: if there is no immediate danger, escort the individual to a safe place to await rescue personnel. Whenever possible, someone should remain with the person while another individual exits the building and notifies rescue personnel of the person’s exact location. Only in extreme situations should you try to evacuate a person in a wheelchair yourself. On the sixth floor east lounge of the Seton Residence Hall, the University has placed an emergency stair chair. This chair makes the evacuation of the mobility impaired safer and faster. The mobility- impaired person is the best authority on how he/she should be moved. Ask before you move someone. While it is best to let rescue personnel conduct the evacuation, the person can be carried by two people who have interlocked their arms to form a chair, or the person can be carried in a sturdy office chair.

A lockdown procedure will occur if a threat occurs on campus or in the local neighborhood that requires students, faculty, staff, and visitors to be taken indoors where it is less likely that they will be injured. This will usually be the result of an attack by an armed person on campus or gunshots fired on campus (or in the near neighborhood). Some emergency situations may require a secondary response beyond those listed above, such as initiating shelter in place. Such situations may include an extended stay on campus due to a major winter storm.

This is to protect students, faculty, and staff who are already inside the buildings. Everyone should find some place of shelter inside that building and stay there until you are directed to leave. Determine if the room you are in can be locked and if so, lock all windows and doors, and turn off all the lights.

If the room can’t be locked, determine if there is a nearby location that can be reached safely and secured in the manner above. If it is not possible to lock the doors or attempt to safely reach another area, then do the following:

  • Place furniture and equipment in front of the doors to barricade them.
  • If a door opens out into a corridor, then use whatever means possible to try to restrict entry to the room, including placing furniture and equipment in front of the door, or using a belt or other item to tie the door handle to something stable.
  • Stay away from windows, stay alert for instructional messages as described below, and put cell phones on vibrate.
  • Remain in place until the police or a campus administrator known to you gives the “all clear.”
  • If the threat compromises your shelter then leave that place for another place of safety even to the extent of leaving or fleeing from the building.

Initial Response in an Emergency

Fire in Building
Fires are a major concern for any university setting. We must all be prepared to respond without hesitation to this emergency.  In the event of a fire, the University expects that all campus community members will evacuate by the nearest exit, closing doors and activating the fire alarm system as they leave.  Do not use elevators. Once safely outside a building, it is appropriate to contact 911 and the MSJ Police Department.  Students and/or staff are informed where to relocate by staff if circumstances warrant at the time of the alarm.

In the event fire alarms sound, University policy is that all occupants must evacuate from the building, closing doors as they leave.  Do not take chances with fire – even a small one can get out of control quickly. If a fire cannot be extinguished with available equipment, activate the nearest fire alarm.  At no time should attempts to control a fire, the closing of doors or the activation of the alarm delay the exit from the building.  Additional directions and information will be sent to the MSJ community through various communication channels.

Armed Intruder on Campus
Mount St. Joseph University utilizes the A.L.I.C.E. program when dealing with armed intruders on campus. The A.L.I.C.E. program was created to enhance the traditional lockdown or shelter-in-place policies used in educational institutions.  A.L.I.C.E. is designed to increase survivability during active shooter or armed intruder situations. Because it may take several minutes for police to respond, it is important for students, faculty, and staff to realize that they are the real first responders on scene. There are tactics that can be used to gain an advantage and to survive. The five components of A.L.I.C.E. are:  Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. Since no two situations are exactly alike, there is no specific order to the components of the A.L.I.C.E. response plan.

• If you see an armed person(s) or hear gunfire, then:

  • Call 911
  • Notify MSJ Police by calling (513) 244-4226 or 4226 from any campus phone. (Be specific).
  • Give as much detail of the suspect as safely possible (e.g., race, sex, clothing, type of weapon, location of suspect).

• If another person alerts you to the above information, then:

  • Find out if they have informed the authorities. If they have not or if you are unsure, then make the emergency notification above.


• When the chapel bells continuously toll, we are under lockdown due to a potentially violent situation.  The bells will not toll for natural disasters or weather related issues.
• You may also be notified by various communication channels such as e-mail system, announcements on the MSJ website, campus phones, social media and any other available resource.
• Lock your classroom door(s).  Turn off your lights. Lower the blinds and cover any windows in the door.  Stay away from windows and doors. Place cell phones on vibrate or silent.
• Utilize objects in the room or on your persons (e.g. desks, tables, chairs, belts, etc.) to help secure the door(s).  Do not rely solely on locks.  You need to provide an initial barrier(s).
• Once you have barricaded the door(s), do NOT open the door(s) for anyone unless notified by the police through the communication channels listed above.
• Look for alternate escape routes (i.e. windows or other doors).
• Start to prepare mentally to defend yourself and others – remember your objective is to survive.
• Begin to gather items that could be used as weapons (e.g. cups, chairs, books, bags, pens, staplers, fire extinguishers, etc.).

• If you have information about the suspect, stay in communication with MSJ Police Department by phone or whatever means available, advising them of the subject’s location and actions. Accurate, real-time information can be critical in these situations.
• Additional directions and information will be sent to the Mount community through the various communication channels listed above.

• If the armed intruder enters the room, use objects in the room (e.g., computers, furniture, staplers, fire extinguishers, etc.) and on your person (e.g., books, binders, backpacks, purses, drinks, etc.) to defend yourself, to distract the shooter, and to disrupt the shooter’s aim and concentration. Remember anything can be a weapon.

  • Do not be afraid to fight back – it is okay to fight.
  • Make yourself a difficult or “hard” target.

• Create a lot of noise.
• Throw objects.
• Run around the room.
• Create chaos.

  • Attack in a group (or swarm the intruder). Grab the intruder’s limbs and head. Take him to the ground and hold him there.
  • If you have possession of the weapon, hide and secure it away from the intruder (e.g., place it in a trashcan). Do not carry or hold the weapon, as police may think you are the armed intruder. Maintain possession of the weapon without being in possession.
  • Inform the police that you have control of the intruder and tell them where you are located. Listen to the instructions given by the police.

• Remove yourself from the danger zone as quickly as possible.
• Safely evacuate whenever possible. YOU may have to decide if it is safe to evacuate.
• Run in a zigzag pattern as fast as you can until out of the danger zone.
• Utilize windows if you are able to do so.
• Do not attempt to drive from the area until instructed to do so by the police.  Instead you will be directed to a secure rally point that will be determined by the police.

Serious Injury Involving Staff, Faculty, Student, or Campus Visitor
• Call 911; notify MSJ Police Department by calling (513) 244-4226 or 4226 from any campus phone.
• Assist injured persons.

Tornado/Severe Weather
The Hamilton County Emergency Management Agency follows the direction of the National Weather Service (NWS). If the NWS issues a warning, Hamilton County will activate ALL the sirens for the county. The NWS gives the definition of a warning as: A weather warning means that a dangerous weather event is imminent. Immediate action must be taken to protect life and property. This weather can take the form of heavy winds, lightning, thunderstorms and tornados.

The Hamilton County siren is the emergency confirmation in the event of a tornado or severe weather.

In the case of severe weather and/or a tornado, attempts will be made to notify persons on campus through various channels of communications.
• Whenever you are aware of severe weather or tornado warnings, you must go immediately to the lowest floor of the building or designated shelter area.
• Stay away from glass windows and glass doors.
• Leave auditoriums, gyms and other free span rooms.
• After the threat is over MSJ Police will make notification that all is clear through various communication channels.
• Additional directions and information will be sent to the Mount community through various communication channels.

Hamilton County uses several different sirens to alert of storms. To learn more, visit the website of the Hamilton County Emergency Management Agency.


If you are inside during an earthquake:
• Immediately take cover under a table or desk, or stand in a doorway. In areas where cover is not available, kneel at the base of an interior wall, facing the wall and with head down and covered by arms. Turn your body away from windows and mirrors.
• Be alert for falling objects and stay away from overhead fixtures, filing cabinets, bookcases, and electrical equipment.

If you are outside during an earthquake:
• Move to an open area away from buildings, trees, and power lines.
• If unable to move to an open area, watch for falling objects.

If you are in an automobile during an earthquake:
• Stop your vehicle in the nearest open area.
• Stay in the vehicle until the shaking stops.

After an earthquake:
• Be aware of the possibility of aftershocks.
• If possible and it is safe to do so, evacuate the building as soon as the shaking has ceased.
• Do not move injured persons unless they are in obvious immediate danger (from fire, building collapse, etc.)
• Open doors carefully. Watch for falling objects.
• Do not use elevators.
• Do not use matches or lighters.
•  Limit use of telephone to calls for emergency services.

Hazardous Material Spill/Release
A hazardous material spill is a spill in which there is a significant amount of a hazardous material released or one in which the release of the substance cannot be controlled. Examples of hazardous materials in quantities that would be considered a spill are: more than one gallon of bleach, more than 100 ml of sulfuric acid, over one gallon of gasoline, and any quantity of mercury. Examples of infectious materials include blood and other body fluids. 

Hazardous Material Spill Response
• If the hazardous material comes in contact with your skin, immediately flush the affected area with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes, and then seek medical attention.
• Pull nearest fire alarm
• Dial 244-4226 to reach Campus Police or dial 0 from any campus extension phone. Advise the officer as to the nature and location of the problem including the room number if possible.
• MSJ Police has a list of chemicals stored in the Science Building and Buildings and Grounds has a list of the SDS/MSDS (material safety data sheets). 
• Stop the source of the hazardous material if possible.
• Unless trained, DO NOT attempt to clean the spill yourself.
• Evacuate the immediate area, closing doors behind you.
• Do not re-enter the building
• MSJ Police and Institutional Communications will begin notification to the campus community as appropriate.
• Make yourself available to Hazardous Materials Response personnel to supply critical information to aid in clean up.
• Provide as much of the following information as possible:

  • Where has the hazardous material spill occurred? Specify the floor, room number, and location in room.
  • Has there been a fire and/or explosion?
  • Are there any injuries? If so, how many?
  • What material has been spilled?
  • What is the state of the material (i.e., solid, liquid, gas, combination)?
  • Is any of the hazardous material escaping from the spill location in the form of chemical vapors/fumes or running or dripping liquid?


Infectious Material Spill Response
• If the infectious material comes in contact with your skin, immediately wash with soap and water.
• Unless trained, DO NOT attempt to clean the spill yourself.
• Dial 244-4226 to reach Campus Police or dial 0 from any campus extension phone.
• Make yourself available to responding Hazardous Materials Response personnel to supply information to aid in clean up.
Chemical/Hazardous Spill or Leak Off-Campus That Threatens Campus Community
• If on campus, follow shelter-in-place direction.
• Do not open windows.
• Do not leave buildings.
• Keep doors closed.
• Additional directions and information will be sent to the Mount community through various communication channels.

Bomb Threat/Suspicious Object

If you receive a telephone bomb threat:
• Listen carefully. Be polite and show interest. Try to keep the caller talking so that you can gather more information about the device, its location, the validity of the threat, or the identity of the caller. Listen carefully for background noises.
• Note the phone number of the caller if your telephone has a display.
• Gather as much information as possible. If possible, use the Bomb Threat Checklist to question the caller in a polite and non-threatening manner.
• Upon completion of the call, immediately dial 911 or dial 244-4226 to reach Campus Police. Then, complete the checklist the call is still fresh in your memory.
• If your phone is equipped, record the caller.
• Remain available to answer questions.
• If the threat was received by another individual and he/she is relaying information to you, use the Bomb Threat Checklist to gather as much information as possible.
A suspicious object is defined as any package, parcel, container, or other object that is suspected of being an explosive device because it is out of place or unusual for that location and cannot be accounted for, or because a threat has been received.

If you find a suspicious object:
• Do not touch the object.
• Move people away from the object.
• Do not use portable radio equipment within 600 feet of the suspicious object.
• Dial 244-4226 to reach Campus Police or dial 0 from any campus extension phone.
• Follow Campus Police instructions precisely.
• Do not attempt to evacuate the building without the authorization of the MSJ Police or other authority.  Current emergency management guidelines caution against automatic evacuation. In most cases, people are likely to be more secure in their offices, laboratories, or classrooms than in hallways that have not been searched or outdoors where an actual threat may be even more likely to exist.
Suspicious Mail or Package

Characteristics of Suspicious Letter or Package
Some typical characteristics, which in combination may trigger suspicion are:
• Restricted marking such as "Personal" or "Special Delivery"
• No return address or one that cannot be verified as legitimate
• A city or state in the postmark that does not match the return address
• Unusual weight based on size
• Lopsided or oddly shaped, strange odors, oily stains, crystallization, protruding wires, rigid or bulky, excessive tape or string

If you receive a suspicious letter or package:
• Do not try to open it.
• Isolate it.
• Call Campus Police at 244-4226 or dial 0 from any campus extension phone.

If you open a parcel containing suspicious material or alleged to contain suspicious material:
• Set it down where you are. Do not move the contaminated material. If any material spills out of the letter or package, do not try to clean it up and do not brush off your clothes as this could disperse material into the air.
• If the material is corrosive or presents an immediate danger, wash or rinse your hands.
• Close the door to the area where the suspicious parcel was opened and do not allow others to enter the area.
• Dial 244-4226 to reach Campus Police or dial 0 from any campus extension phone.
• Stay at the scene to answer questions from Campus Police and environmental health and safety personnel. If anyone enters the closed area in which the suspicious letter or package, that person should also stay at the scene.

Power Outage
• Keep a flashlight in your area.
• Dial 244-4226 to reach Campus Police or dial 0 from any campus extension phone.
• Provide assistance to others in your immediate area that may be unfamiliar with the space.
• If you are in an unlighted area, proceed cautiously to an area that has emergency lights.
• If you are in an elevator, stay calm. Use the emergency button or telephone to alert Campus Police.

Flooding and Water Damage to a Building

Serious water damage can occur from a number of sources: broken pipes, clogged drains, damaged skylights or windows, or construction errors.
If a water leak occurs:
• Dial 244-4226 to reach Campus Police or dial 0 from any campus extension phone.
• Report the exact location and severity of the leak.
• If there are electrical appliances or outlets near the leak, use extreme caution. If there is any possible danger, evacuate the area. 
• If you know the source of the water and are confident of your ability to stop it (i.e., unclog the drain, turn off the water, etc.), do so.
• Be prepared to assist as directed in protecting objects that are in jeopardy. Take only essential steps to avoid or reduce immediate water damage, such as covering objects.

• Delhi Fire Department and EMS will be notified.
• Additional directions and information will be sent to the Mount community through various communication channels.

Aircraft Crash
If an aircraft crash were to occur on the University campus, remember that in the initial stages, it will be total chaos. Attempt to compose yourself:
• Protect yourself - there will be fire, fuel, twisted metal, and biological hazards.
• Once you are safe, assist injured persons. Remember, these injuries will be traumatic and horrific.
• Do not move any items or wreckage unless necessary to render medical aid to an injured or crash survivor.
• An aircraft incident will activate the Hamilton County Mutual Aid system.  Agencies from the tri-state will respond to assist.
• Follow the direction of MSJ Police and other law enforcement and rescue personnel.

Pandemic Disease Outbreak

The potential for a pandemic disease outbreak impacting the MSJ community is real.  To this end we have and will continue to make plans to address this potential along two fronts.

• A direct epidemic within our community
• Indirectly from the impact of an epidemic in the greater Cincinnati area.

In either case, our community will be adversely impacted.  The areas that will cause disruption include:

• Impact on students, faculty and staff – Inability to come to class, to hold class, to come to work, and/or to provide vital functions to the community to ensure effective operations
• Inability of commerce to supply needs of our community
• Potential loss of public transport

Pandemic Disease Outbreak on Campus:

1. The MSJ Police will coordinate with MSJ Wellness Center on the location of a Point of Distribution (POD).
2. Campus Police will respond to the location as designated by Hamilton County to retrieve MSJ’s allotment of medication.
3. Pandemic Plan will be implemented.
