Office of Environmental Health and Safety
The Office of Environmental Health and Safety is available to assist the campus community at large in emergency preparedness and serves as a central collection point for all campus emergency plans. The campus’ alert system and emergency plans are outlined below. For more information, please contact the EHS Office.
Edinboro University uses the EU Shield safety application and mass notification system to provide important, life-saving information in emergency situations. This system includes the latest in enhanced safety features to protect students, employees and visitors to our campus.
A key component of the new system is the EU Shield mobile web application. This safety app for your phone offers ready access to:
The EU Shield safety app can be downloaded through the Google Play or Apple App Store. The app is free.
Please note when setting up your profile within the app that you will be required to provide a personal identification number (PIN). Remember your PIN, because it will be needed to update your profile in the future and to use some features within the app.
The University also uses the following additional methods to inform the campus community in emergencies:
Currently enrolled students are automatically signed up to receive text and email notifications. Employees who wish to sign up for text and email notifications as an alternative to downloading the app can do so using the Registration / Login feature in myEdinboro.
The EU Shield mobile app was made possible through financial assistance by the EU Student Government Association.
University Emergency Response Guide: The University Emergency Response Guide contains information that was created to assist University employees and students in responding to a variety of emergency situations. It is maintained by the University Police Department.
Building Emergency Action Plans (BEAPs): Building-specific emergency action plans are being developed for all campus facilities. If you would like to assist in the creation of your building’s emergency action plans, contact Environmental Health and Safety.
Special Event Emergency Planning: Edinboro University hosts special events throughout the year, including sporting events, concerts, fundraisers and SGA-sanctioned events. Nationally, as well as locally, special events typically transpire with few or no problems. However, when something does go wrong, either as a result of a natural hazard or a man-made hazard, the potential risk of injury or death is greatly increased due to the number of people present. To assist in mitigating these and other threats and to respond appropriately, all special events should have an emergency plan.
Hazard Mitigation Plan: Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) was awarded a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to update plans for all State System universities. Edinboro University's Hazard Mitigation Plan recently was granted Approval-Pending-Adoption status from FEMA.
