Campus Emergencies, Warnings and Notifications

On behalf of the Bloomsburg University Police Department, I welcome you back to the fall 2015 semester. It is our ongoing objective to keep our campus safe and prevent students, faculty and staff from becoming victims of crime. The information in this email is designed to let you and others know what to do in an emergency situation.

Please take a few minutes to watch the short life safety video, Run, Hide, Fight, which promotes a simple three-step plan to escape danger. While it is specific to an active shooter situation, it can be utilized for a variety of events.

Thank you and stay safe,
  Tom Phillips, Director of Police
