Emergency Information

Emergency Action Plans

All athletic training rooms and athletic complexes, fields and stadiums have posted emergency action plans should you need special assistance. Most venues will possess an AED and spine board.

Blue Campus Telephones

Blue telephones are located throughout campus for emergency assistance.  Dial 8-6911 to contact the university police.

Lightning Detection System

JMU is equipped with a lightning detection system.  When the electrical energy in the atmosphere reaches critical levels, a 15 second siren will alert us of potential danger.  Once this occurs, a mandatory evacuation from the athletic venue is required.  Prior to the start of any event, our host staff will inform you of the procedures and locations for evacuation.  Return to play will occur only when the system signals an "all clear", identified by 3, consecutive, five second sirens.
