Safety & Emergency Response


Safety & Emergency Response

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Security VansLocated within the Office of Safety & Security, the Emergency Management Program provides comprehensive emergency management operations that coordinate campus, local, state, federal, and other community resources to protect life, property, and the environment through prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery, from all man-made and natural threats and disasters that impact the campus community and its neighbors.

​Reporting an Emergency

The College’s Office of Safety and Security is open and operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Blue Light phones and security cameras are located strategically across campus. This equipment is monitored 24 hours a day by security staff. If you discover an emergency on campus, you can report it in several ways:

  • Dial 2222 from a campus phone or 401​-865-2222 from a cell phone to report the emergency to Safety and Security.
  • If phones are out of service, send a runner to the Office of Safety and Security, which is located at the Huxley Avenue gate.
  • You also can report an emergency by pressing the emergency button on any Blue Light phone.
  • Provide your name, and describe the emergency and its location.​

​In Case of a Bomb Threat

If a bomb threat is called into your office,​ you will need to act quickly, but remain calm and try to obtain as much information as possible from the caller.  Keep the caller on the line for as long as possible.  DO NOT HANG UP, even if the caller does.  Contact Safety & Security immediately (401.865.2222) with information gathered from this checklist​ from the Department of Homeland Security.​​  

  • ​Use the checklist to gather as much information as possible.  Write down as much detail as you can remember. Try to get exact words.​
