Emergency Planning

The Emergency Response Team (ERT) is responsible for the comprehensive emergency and disaster management planning efforts for the University of Maine at Machias. We provide planning, training, inter-departmental coordination, and emergency response assistance for major emergencies or disasters.

Emergency Notifications

In the event of an emergency, initial notification and instructions will be sent to the campus community via:

  • e2Campus Alert System
  • Campus-wide E-mail
  • UMM Web site

In order to quickly communicate emergency information to the campus community, UMM has implemented the e2Campus emergency notification system that allows anyone in the campus community to receive alerts or other emergency information via e-mail and a text message on their mobile phones. Participation in e2Campus is not mandatory, but is strongly encouraged. Students, faculty, and staff can sign up here.
