Bucknell has a comprehensive emergency management and crisis plan that it regularly and systematically reviews. This plan includes our capacity to employ a variety of communications tools and systems to inform members of the campus community of emergency- or crisis-related developments.
Bucknell University has a variety of communications tools to alert our students and the campus of emergencies, including:
The University's Department of Public Safety has 14 full-time officers and six part-time officers. They hold police and arrest powers and patrol campus on a regular basis, 24-hours, seven days per week. They are Act 120 certified police officers (meaning they have attended the same municipal police academy as all municipal police officers), and trained in emergency response, CPR, first aid, fire safety, crisis intervention, patrol, and more.
The department also has a close working relationship with the Buffalo Valley Regional Police Department and the Union County Sheriff's office.
