About emergency preparedness and response at Messiah University
As a Christian university, Messiah has a responsibility to respond to a crisis situation in a way that reflects our faith commitment and our care for one another as a Christian community. Messiah University is committed to act responsibly with integrity in a crisis with evident preparedness, compassion and honesty.
The safety and well-being of our students and employees are of highest priority to Messiah University. To ensure this priority, the University recruits and trains a campus task force of administrators, faculty and staff to facilitate calm, quick and effective responses during emergency situations. In conjunction with local, state and federal authorities, the University’s Crisis Management Team is prepared to respond quickly and appropriately in times of emergency.
