Emergency Info

This page is designed to inform the Siena College community about emergency preparedness and response. Siena College's Emergency Response Plan (ERP) has been established to provide advance planning for emergencies that affect the overall operation of the College. Through rapid response and communication, the Emergency Response Team (ERT) will assist in protecting the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors.

There is currently no emergency facing the Siena College campus, but in the event of an emergency, a red band will appear across the top of every webpage on siena.edu to provide timely information for students, parents, faculty, staff, and other members of the College community. It will be updated regularly as new information becomes available.  

Campus Emergency Phone Numbers:

Office of Public Safety: 518-783-2376
Emergency number: 911 (from campus phone)/ 518-783-2999 (off campus phone or cell phone)


Emergency Procedures and Preparedness:

Activation of the Emergency Response Team

Not all emergencies require the same degree of response and each incident is evaluated on a case by case basis. Major emergencies and Disasters will require notification of the Emergency Response Team (ERT).

Major Emergency - any incident, potential or actual, which affects an entire building or buildings and would disrupt the overall operation of the College.

Disasters - any event or occurrence, which has taken place and has seriously impaired or halted the operations of the College.

The Director of Public Safety will notify members of the Emergency Response Team (ERT) and the community will be provided with information and instructions as quickly as possible.
