Emergency Preparedness

Plan. Prepare. React.

Merrimack College is committed to providing a safe learning and working environment on its campus.

We have made a conscious effort to prepare for emergencies, and believe that the community should be confident that the college is prepared to address adverse situations.

This Emergency Response Plan has been established to cope with major incidents that may endanger the safety and well-being of our students, staff, faculty and visitors. The procedures contained on this website are intended only as a guide for our college and cannot address every conceivable situation. However, it does provide the basic administrative guidelines necessary to identify and ensure continuous leadership to cope with most campus emergencies throughout their duration.
