Purdue’s Environmental Health and Public Safety team serves the community in partnership with the city, county and state emergency response and compliance agencies. The annual security report “Your Campus, Your Safety” , which details many of the programs and tools available to the campus community can be found here: http://www.purdue.edu/police/reports/pdf/Annual%20Security%20Report-%20Your%20Campus_Your%20Safety_West%20Lafayette.pdf. The EHPS team includes Purdue’s Police, Radiological and Environmental Management, Emergency Preparedness and Planning, Fire Protection Engineering, and Regulatory compliance teams, as well as a full time Fire and Emergency Medical Services team. Purdue Police and Purdue Fire departments work closely with Student Affairs and University Residences to provide virtual and classroom training to help students stay safe on campus. Particularly popular are the Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) program, and the Citizen’s Police Academy. Purdue has more than 300 Emergency 911 telephones installed across campus that ring directly into the Public Safety Dispatch for quick response to on campus events. Students are encouraged to sign up for emergency text messages that provide “heads up” information quickly, 24 hours a day.
