professionals deem a situation to warrant a notification be made, the University will do so at the request of the Director of Student Health.

For Weather-Related Events: If a weather event causes a dangerous situation or significant emergency on the North Greenville University Campus(es), the Senior Associate Vice President Tigerville Operations will make a notification to the campus community. In order to determine the seriousness of weather-related events, many resources may be consulted, including but not limited to:

 National Weather Services  Local meteorologists  First-hand observation of conditions on campus and in the surrounding area  Observations from other school officials living in other parts of the county

For Campus Enhancement-Events: If maintenance issues cause unsafe conditions on campus, such as a gas leak or a roof collapse, the Senior Associate Vice President Tigerville Operations will send out a notification at the request of the Vice President of Campus Enhancement once qualified personnel have assessed the situation.

a. “Determine the appropriate segment or segments of the campus community to receive a notification.”

In deciding what is the appropriate group of the campus community is to receive an alert, the first factor is the nature of the event. For instance, if the event is a campus-enhancement related event such as a small gas leak in a residence hall, only those in the effected residence hall should receive the alert. However, if new information showed that there was a threat to larger segments of the community (for instance the leak was worse than originally reported and posed a danger to those in a nearby academic building), further notices would be issued as that information came to light. If there were an event with the potential to effect more of the campus community, such as a tornado was spotted a mile from the campus, all members of the campus community would be notified and instructed of a safe place to which they should evacuate.

b. “Determine the content of the notification.”

The contents of a notification will be affected by the nature of an emergency. For example, if an event is weather-related, it is in the best interest of the campus community to share as much information as possible. Information shared may include where resident students should seek shelter, where commuter students should seek shelter, or instruct commuter students and faculty and staff members not already on campus to stay away. However, if there is a safety-related event, sharing too much may hinder investigations by Campus Safety & Security or other law enforcement agencies. In these instances, information will be shared as deemed appropriate and necessary by the Director of Campus Safety & Security. As new information is available, further notifications may be sent out in the same methods as listed above for the initial notification. Further notifications will be the responsibility of whoever initiated the original notification.

c. “Initiate the notification system.”

In the event the institution deems there is a need to disseminate information about a significant emergency or dangerous situation on campus, in addition to other listed methods, the university’s
