Emergency Response Information

Emergency Response Plan

LIM College maintains an Emergency Response Plan (ERP) for the purposes of implementing an all-hazards set of protocols to be used in the event an emergency situation directly impacts LIM College’s security and operational effectiveness. The ERP provides an all-hazards and hazard-specific protocols for preparedness, response, and recovery before, during, and after an emergency situation. It also ensures the standardization and coordination of all LIM College emergency response operations through the utilization of the College’s personnel, resources, and core competencies, in compliance with applicable local, state, and federal regulations and laws.

Crisis Communications Plan

LIM College maintains a Crisis Communications Plan (CCP) to ensure effective communication with all LIM College constituents during a crisis. These constituencies include, but are not limited to: students, employees, families, alumni, Board members, industry partners, media, federal, state and local agencies, and the general public. The CCP is designed to guide the communications efforts around an incident or emergency that may affect or has affected the health, safety or the welfare of students, faculty, staff or campus visitors. Critical incidents require a timely and effective communications response and include situations that: result or may result in significant damage to facilities; result or may result in death, injury or health or safety threats to our students, faculty, staff or the public; disrupt the College’s operations and/or result in activation of the College’s Emergency Response Plan (ERP).


To prepare for and respond to a pandemic health incident, LIM College has developed a specific Pandemic Influenza Plan (PIP), utilizing federal recommendations published by the Department of Health & Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The PIP is intended to assist faculty, students and staff in planning for the possibility of a local pandemic outbreak. Goals of the PIP include, but are not limited to: minimizing the spread of diseases in the LIM community, effectively identifying essential response personnel, ensuring that recommended actions from government and health agencies are followed and communicated in a timely manner, minimizing instructional and academic credit loss, and communicating with and educating the LIM community on the College’s actions, disease prevention measures, and health and wellness information.
