Emergencies can occur at any time and can arise from a number of causes including fire, chemical spills, gas leaks, medical emergencies and physical threats. The University has in place a number of procedures to respond to emergency situations that might arise. The KU Emergency Response plan will provide you with the knowledge you need to stay safe.
Security Services Rapid Response
KU Security guards is your first contact point for any incident or emergency on each campus. They will coordinate any emergency response 24/7.
Rapid response is generally initiated when Security Services is contacted by staff, students or visitors via:
- a call to the emergency line 02 4018200
- one of the Patrolling Security on the campus
- alarm notification, e.g. fire alarm.
Responses are managed from the Security Services Control Room/ command room and overseen by the Emergency Response team (ERT).
Emergency Notification System
An emergency or crisis situation can arise with very little warning and could seriously impact on your safety on campus. With this in mind KU provides an emergency notification system that operates via mobile phone SMS/text.
Staff and students are registered by default to receive an SMS alert when emergency situationsarise. Please note there will be an annual test of the system for quality assurance purposes.
Being a member of KU community, you are required to report any hazard, accident, near miss and dangerous occurrence to EHSS department using the respective forms.
