Emergencies can occur at any time, without warning. Careful planning prepares members of the campus community to handle crises and emergencies with appropriate responses and could save lives. Whether developing plans or being familiar with those emergency plans, every member of the ND community has a role in emergency preparedness.
The University’s emergency preparedness protocols were developed to ensure the safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors in the event of a campus disaster or other emergency situation. The resources and information contained in this are a component of the University's overall emergency preparedness and response efforts.

In addition to its first responder role, the Notre Dame Fire Department (NDFD) conducts inspections, trains campus personnel, and helps mitigate campus fire hazards.
The Fire Prevention Plan provides guidance to the entire campus community regarding fire safety procedures and requirements.
