Purpose of this Guide
The Academy has always worked towards ensuring the campus is a safe place to learn and work. Midshipmen, faculty, and staff can help the Academy safeguard the campus by taking preventative measures to ensure safety and preparedness, and by referencing this guide in the event of an emergency.
While we cannot provide information on all possible incidents that may occur, the information provided in this guide will give you basic procedures to follow in the event of a number of different emergencies. This guide can serve as a quick reference for what to do and who to notify for many different types of emergencies. This is not a comprehensive list of instructions and resources, rather a reminder of the basic steps that should be taken to minimize risks associated with a given hazard and to protect yourself and others from harm.
Time is the most important factor in the optimal management of these types of situations.
