Timely Warnings

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of the Director of Public Safety, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued. The warning will be issued by the Public Relations Department through the college e-mail system to students, faculty, staff, notices will be placed on bulletin boards in resident halls, academic and administration buildings and published in the campus student newspaper, The Eagle Eye.

Depending on the particular circumstances of the crime, especially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the community and individuals, the Department of Public Safety may also post a notice on the campus website on the Department of Public Safety webpage at LHU Public Safety; providing the university community with more immediate notification. In such instances, a copy of the notice is posted in each residence hall. The LHU website is immediately accessible via computer by all faculty, staff and students. Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstance to the University police, by phone (484-2278) or in person at thee dispatch center within Public Safety located in the Glennon Infirmary Building.

Lock Haven University will be notifying students and employees of emergency situations via the mass paging functions of our telecommunication system. Telephones and paging systems in all offices, classrooms and other academic spaces will simultaneously provide an audible notification of the emergency situation as well as any incident-specific instructions provided by the Public Safety staff. Such notifications can be tailored and directed to specific parts of the campus if the situation requires that level of granularity.
