Planning for Emergencies
Preparation is the key to success in dealing with an emergency. Follow these steps BEFORE an emergency occurs.
NOTE: Except in life threatening situations, a person should only be carried by trained emergency response personnel.
Transportation Issues: If your disability requires special assistance, the Department of Public Safety 856-256-4922 can help you get from any parking area on campus to a specific building; this includes disabilities that require wheelchairs.
Special Accommodation Request: If you have a disability that requires special, or unique accommodations call the Academic Success Center 856-256-4234 to arrange those requests.
The Department of Public Safety is outfitted to assist the hearing impaired with a Text Telephone system, or TTY. A TTY is a special device that allows people, who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech-impaired to use the telephone to communicate, by allowing them to type messages back and forth to one another instead of talking and listening. A TTY is required at both ends of the conversation in order to communicate.
If calling anywhere from Rowan University, dial extension 4786. If you are calling from outside of Rowan, call 856-256-4786. Our Public Safety Communications personnel can assist you, and send emergency assistance, if needed.
