Emergency Communication & Planning
The safety and security of the SUNY Delhi community is the college's highest priority. To ensure this goal is met, the college takes a proactive approach to emergency planning to ensure it is prepared to respond quickly and appropriately in emergency situations.
The college has a comprehensive Emergency Response Plan. For security reasons, the plan is not posted on the Internet.
Reporting an Emergency
For all campus emergencies (fire, medical, police) call University Police from any campus phone: 4700 or from any cell phone: 607-746-4700. You may also dial Delaware County 911. University Police officers are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout the year. Be prepared to state your name, the nature of the emergency and your location.
Emergencies, disasters or accidents - natural and man-made - can happen at any time or without warning. SUNY Delhi students and employees should familiarize themselves with college buildings and the following guidelines:
In the event of an emergency, SUNY Delhi has several systems in place to quickly allow information to reach as much of the college community as possible.
New York Alert is an instant, mass notification system that enables students, employees and parents to receive emergency notifications and updates via SMS text messaging, voice message, e-mail and/or fax.
This initiative is one component of SUNY Delhi’s wide-reaching emergency communications strategy, with the goal of providing a safe and secure environment in which to work and live.
NY Alert is a voluntary service provided by the State of New York to all SUNY campuses. Information provided will be used for notification purposes only; no advertisements or non-emergency alerts will be sent. You must sign up for the service in order to receive alerts.
Receiving an Alert
If you receive a NY Alert message:
To keep information as current as possible, update your information once during the academic year. It will be necessary to complete this update if you wish to continue receiving alerts.
Types of Response
Evacuate: Proceed immediately to the nearest exit in an orderly fashion. Do not use elevators. Keep low or as close to the floor as possible if smoke is present at or near your eye level. After leaving the building, move well away from it, taking care not to block entry and exit to the building. Do not re-enter the building until a law enforcement or University Police officer has given an "all clear.
Shelter in Place: All college personnel and students are to remain secured in the rooms they are currently in, and no one is allowed to leave until the situation has been resolved. This will allow University Police time to address building emergency/threat and reduce the risk of contact with any innocent bystanders in the immediate area. Do not open doors for anyone unless their identity has been verified. Stay away from windows, doors and outside walls. Anyone outside during a situation which requires sheltering in place should go to the closest building unless otherwise directed.
