The Mineral Area College Department of Public Safety’s mission is to help the college fulfill its mission and goals, providing a safe learning environment using professional quality police and security services, modern police strategies and community partnerships. Mineral Area College is committed to supporting the welfare of its students, faculty, staff and visitors. Preparing a college Crisis Management Plan and allocating resources to respond to possible emergencies is one way the college offers this support. The plan is designed in accordance with appropriate laws, regulations and policies that govern crisis/emergency preparedness and reflect the best and most current thinking in the area. The Crisis Management Plan is designed to maximize human survival and preservation of property, minimize danger, restore normal operations of the college and assure responsive communications with the college community, surrounding neighborhoods and the municipality. This plan is set in operation whenever a natural or induced emergency affecting the college reaches proportions that cannot be handled by established measures. A crisis may be sudden and unforeseen, or there may be varying periods of warning. This plan is intended to be sufficiently flexible to accommodate contingencies of all types, magnitudes and durations. The plan provides for aiding the local community when appropriate, although the primary responsibility of the plan is for the college community for which it is designed. The intent for the plan to be viewed as a tool to accomplish the above stated purpose with a minimum of confusion and wasted effort.
