BC EMERGENCY - Campus Preparedness & Emergency Information

Message from the Director



The Boston College Emergency Management Executive Team has designated this website as the primary source of information in the event of a campus emergency. This site offers information about existing campus safety procedures, how to prepare for an emergency, guidelines for responding to and staying informed in the event of an emergency, links to on and off-campus resources and general tips for making safe choices every day.


Creating a culture of preparedness is a team effort. It requires staff, faculty and most importantly, students working together to create a safe and secure community.  Implementing recommendations found on this website will help to ensure you and Boston College are prepared.

I encourage all Boston College faculty, staff and students to continue their on-going efforts in emergency preparedness to enhance the University’s capability to respond to and recover from emergency situations.


John Tommaney
Director of Emergency Management
Chair, Emergency Management Executive Team
