Emergency Preparedness

In order to respond effectively to emergency situations, Skidmore College maintains a Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) that is based on the framework of the four phases of emergency management: prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.

This plan is intended to be comprehensive, sustainable and flexible, taking into account the unique mission and characteristics of Skidmore.

All members of the community should familiarize themselves with the safety and emergency planning information and resources listed on this site. In the event of an emergency, they can serve as a quick reference for effective action.

Being prepared is the responsibility of every person in the community. It's up to you to play your integral role.
