Emergency Procedures Manual

Drake University is prepared to respond to emergencies 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. If a major emergency such as a tornado, hazardous materials accident, or shooting occurs, the Incident Command Team will direct the University’s emergency response. Specially trained response and support teams will be activated. 

It is your responsibility to be familiar with the information in the Emergency Procedures Manual, be sure that your contact information is up to date in the Bulldog Alert database (on the "Campus Life" tab in blueView), and to know the escape routes for locations you visit frequently. Escape routes are posted in building lobbies. Please contact Campus Public Safety if you have any questions.
