Recent Higher Education Act (HEA) provisions require institutions to prepare a statement of campus policies regarding immediate emergency response and evacuation procedures. The following links will provide a video and other pertinent information on our Emergency Management Plan and Preparation Guidelines.
Emergency Notification System (StagAlert)
Fairfield University's Emergency Notification System (StagAlert) permits the simultaneous distribution of broadcast e-mails, text messages, and voice calls (including voice mails for calls unanswered). The system is used to distribute emergency notifications only in situations where a clear and active (e.g. in progress) threat or emergency exists that impacts the community and where it is recommended that the recipients take some form of action in response to the active threat or emergency. Periodic updates regarding the status of the situation will be provided as needed.
