Emergency Preparedness

Building Safety Captain Program

Brandeis University is committed to campus safety as a method of promoting a positive, productive learning environment for all members of the campus community.  The Building Safety Captains Program initiated in 2005 and coordinated by the Public Safety department, has transitioned to the Emergency Management department. It is designed to facilitate emergency response across our academic and administrative buildings.  The primary responsibility of Building Safety Captains is to serve as the key point of contact within building communities for safety instruction, to assist building occupants during building evacuations, and to help relay information to building occupants during campus emergencies.
