    Emergency Planning Resources

    August 29, 2019

    Members of The University Community, 

    As we prepare for the 2019-2020 academic year, the University Police Department would like to offer a reminder of the importance of being prepared in an emergency.  The University Police website provides various information on how to prepare and respond to different types of emergencies on campus.  Resources include: 

    The Health and Safety Office is also available to discuss planning and evacuation options for anyone who feels they need assistance during an emergency. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Health and Safety Office via healthandsafety@scranton.edu. 

    Bleeding Control Stations

    As a part of a nationwide campaign, “Bleeding Control” kits have now been installed at strategic locations throughout campus. These kits contain items that can be used by anyone to help control bleeding during a traumatic incident. Severe bleeding is a common cause of death during emergency situations and traumatic incidents, with nearly 35% of fatalities occurring before victims even arrive at the hospital, according to the National Trauma Institute. In the coming weeks, University Police will be coordinating voluntary training sessions for the University Community. The 90 minute training sessions are designed for ordinary citizens and bystanders who may be in a position to help during a severe-bleeding incident.

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact a member of The University Police Department (x7888) or Health and Safety Office (x4277).
