Emergency Communications

Communication is the key to managing any crisis or emergency situation. To this end, Earlham College utilizes several means of communication to provide vital information to the campus communication should this type of event occur.

Emergency Notification System

The Earlham College Emergency Notification System (ENS) communicates through email, phone calls and text messaging*.

These alerts are usually in the earliest moments of a crisis or emergency, and may contain very brief concise information and directions.

To ensure this type of vital information can be communicated, it is important that Earlham College have up to date emergency contact information on all students and employees.
