Emergency/Crisis Communications Packet
In early November, all faculty and staff will receive an emergency/crisis communications packet consisting of the IPFW Crisis Response pocket guide, folder, postcard, phone sticker, and magnet
containing important information for you to review and become familiar with.
This information is intended to inform the campus community and give you the information needed to provide an immediate response in a crisis situation while on campus. All classrooms are also being outfitted with updated emergency posters detailing emergency response for situations such as alarms, fire/smoke, explosions, bomb threats, loss of building utilities, active shooter, chemical/biological spills, and psychological incidents.
October is Mental Health Awareness Month. The phone sticker, magnet, and postcard in your packet all contain relevant and important information for helping a student you think may have thoughts of suicide or mental health needs. Please review this information carefully. The Office of the Dean of Students and Project Compass are available to assist colleges and departments with crisis management and suicide prevention training. For more information please call the Dean of Students at 260-481-6601 or Jeannie DiClementi with Project COMPASS at 260-481-6397.
We appreciate your attention to and review of this information. For detailed guidelines and additional safety tips please visit the IPFW Crisis Management website
This information is made possible by the Office of the Chancellor, Physical Plant, the Office of the Dean of Students, Project COMPASS, University Police, and the Crisis Management Committee.
