Public Safety

Personal and public safety on the AUM campus is a community effort. It is important that each individual is aware of the possible safety threats and resources available to avoid or react to those threats.

Active Shooter

An “active shooter” situation is a situation when an intruder enters a building or campus grounds and threatens the personal safety and welfare of our students, faculty, staff and guests. These are the characteristics of such a situation:

  • Involves one or more suspect(s) who, as police respond to the scene, are actively killing or causing serious, life-threatening bodily injury to multiple victims.
  • The overriding objective of the suspect(s) appears to be that of mass murder, rather than other criminal conduct such as robbery or hostage-taking.
  • Such a threat is not immediately contained and there is immediate risk of death and injury.
  • Considered the greatest threat to a campus community.
  • Leaves little or no time for proper planning and requires law enforcement to take immediate action
  • Active shooter situations can and often develop into hostage situations upon the arrival of law enforcement.

Public Safety

Alcohol and Drug Awareness and Enforcement

We want to provide you a safe, productive educational and work environment that is free of the illegal use of alcohol and other drugs. The university prohibits the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispersion, possession or use of illegal drugs or alcohol by students or employees on university property and at university activities. Whether you are a student or an employee, if you are impaired by drugs or alcohol, you cannot be present in the workplace, in class or at any university activity. We want you to be informed of the risks associated with alcohol or substance abuse, so every year in the third week of October, we recognize National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week. We’ll provide a series of free programs focusing on alcohol and substance abuse issues.

AUM Alert

As part of Auburn University at Montgomery’s ongoing effort to safeguard students, faculty and staff, the University has implemented a new emergency communications system. Known as the AUM Alert, the system allows you to receive time-sensitive emergency messages in the form of e-mail, voice mail and text messages.

Everyone who has a AUM e-mail address will receive emergency alerts on their computers. However, in order to receive text messages and voice mail alerts, members of the campus community will be asked to provide a mobile phone number. While participation in the text and voice messaging notification is optional, enrolling is strongly encouraged. The information that you supply is considered confidential and will not be shared. You will only be contacted through the system in the event of an emergency.

Critical Operations Manual
Emergency Preparedness

Natural and man-made disasters can occur without warning and individual preparedness is the cornerstone of emergency preparedness and response. Knowing how to prepare for and respond appropriately during emergencies can save your life. The most common threat to the Auburn University at Montgomery campus is severe weather. However, other threats also exist. Colleges and universities are open environments creating the possibility of accidental and intentional chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) incidents. Knowing the types of emergencies and common guidelines for handling those emergencies is the first step in being prepared. Please review the information on the website and become familiar with emergency procedures for the areas of campus you commonly visit.

Emergency Evacuation Plans
Fire

If You Encounter a Fire:

  • Alert others and pull the closest fire alarm.
  • Evacuate the building.
    • Do not use the elevator.
    • Grab your purse/wallet/keys.
    • Close all doors behind you as you leave.
    • Evacuate to your building assembly point (located at least 200 feet away from the building).
    • Do not re-enter the building until the fire department or police makes the all-clear announcement.
  • Call 244-3178 or 9-1-1.
    • Provide as much additional information as you can, such as where the fire (building name and address) is and if there are people inside.
    • Self-report basic personal information to emergency response personnel for tracking.
Medical
  • In case of medical emergency call Campus Police at 244-3424 or 911 to request assistance.
  • Provide the following information:
    • Building name
    • Floor or room number
    • Nature of injury
    • Location of injured person
    • Age and sex of injured person(s)
    • Condition of injured person
    • Any known medical history
    • Your name and telephone number
  • Remain with the person with the medical emergency.
  • Do not move them unless they are in immediate danger of further injury.
Severe weather

Severe weather in the form of thunderstorms, damaging hail, high winds, and tornadoes are a threat to our community. The City of Montgomery and Auburn University at Montgomery maintain several warning and alert systems for use in the event major storms or other disasters threaten our community. Ideally, sufficient warning time will allow precautionary measures to be implemented. The unpredictability of weather conditions, however, does not always provide for adequate warning.
