Newly posted at the UW-Green Bay Office of Public Safety website is a document that sets forth the University’s protocols for making emergency notifications and timely warnings under the federal Clery Act. The law requires institutions to immediately notify the campus community upon confirmation of an emergency or dangerous situation that involves “an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees.” There is also a “timely warning” provision that applies to certain crimes and the prevention of further incidents. The UW-Green Bay protocols call for notification via the GB Alert system, NetNotify, email, website banner, loudspeakers, flyers, telephone and more, depending on the situation. You can link to the document by clicking on the ‘Campus Notification Protocols’ near the top right of the Public Safety homepage, www.uwgb.edu/publicsafety/.
