Emergency Information

Emergency Communication and Planning

The safety and security of the SUNY Morrisville community is the college's highest priority. To ensure this goal is met, the college takes a proactive approach to emergency planning so that it is prepared to respond quickly and appropriately in emergency situations.

The college has a comprehensive Emergency Response Plan. For security reasons, the plan is not posted on the Internet.

The Emergency Response Team meets frequently throughout the year to review safety and security issues, update the college's Emergency Response Plan, and participate in tabletop exercises. The Emergency Response Team is ready to be activated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The purpose of this website is to provide practical, helpful information and resources to students, employees and parents.
