St. Mary's College of Maryland takes the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors seriously. We intentionally plan for predictable and unpredictable incidents and emergencies. An Emergency Response Team (ERT) is formed whenever there is a significant incident or emergency on campus. However, the ERT cannot respond to the emergency alone. Each and every person on campus has a responsibility to effectively respond when emergency situations arise.

This online information has been designed to help all students, faculty, and staff members respond effectively to such emergencies. Please review the material on this web page.


Roberto N. Ifill, Ph.D.
Dean of Students


In every emergency situation or incident, each student, faculty, and staff member should carry out the following seven (7) critical steps:

  1. Remain Calm
  2. Check official communication sources for information regarding the emergency
  3. Follow instructions for next steps
  4. Care for and be responsive to others who may be in need of assistance
  5. Check in with concerned family and friends to let them know you are OK
  6. Check official communication sources for periodic updates
  7. Watch for the all clear signal
