The Rome Center's Emergency, Safety, and Security Evacuation Procedures call for two types of notification.
(1) There is an internal telephone tree in cases of defined emergencies, beginning with the directors, moving to the associate dean of students, who by residing on campus serves as the director's designee on the scene until the director arrives, and on through the rest of the administrative staff. (see Tab 4 - Rome Center Notation Roster)
(2) In an emergency situation the director or the director's designee "shall immediately inform the President of the University or the Provost in his absence." As a matter of practice, the Director of International Programs is notified as well.
