Emergency Action Plan

The Emergency Action Plan is for the protection and safety of all members of the Goucher College community, including students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors. During any emergency, proper action saves lives and helps prevent injuries. The plan applies to fires, explosions, floods, toxic material releases, civil disturbances, and any other emergency on campus. For your safety and the safety of others on campus, please familiarize yourself with this plan.

As a basic principle of emergency response on campus, all calls for emergency response should be made first to 911, and immediately thereafter to the Office of Public Safety, at 410-337-6111. It is essential that Public Safety be contacted in addition to 911 so that public safety officers are able to direct emergency responders to the location of the emergency.
