Residence Life

Residence Life Emergency Procedures

Residence Life has an emergency plan that designates areas of responsibility and defines the framework necessary to respond to an emergency on the windward Hawai‘i Loa campus.

The three possible Emergency Action Plans (EAP) include:

  • Evacuation Plan
  • Relocation Plan
  • Lock Down Plan

Emergency supplies are stored on campus and inventoried every year.

Residents are encouraged at check-in to familiarize themselves with all emergency equipment in their hall to include the fire pull stations, emergency exits, and evacuation sites. Additionally, at their first hall meeting of each semester, Emergency Action Plans (EAP) are reviewed. Students are also reminded of the "Safe and Well" program sponsored by the American Red Cross: https://disastersafe.redcross.org.

Missing Person Policy Statement

The Higher Education Act of 2008 (HEOA) requires that all institutions that provide on-campus student housing must establish a student notification policy and procedures.

Statement of Policy:

Each resident must identify and register confidential contact information for an individual to be contacted by the institution no later than 24 hours after the time that the student in question is determined missing. This is done via the Missing Person Emergency Contact Form at housing check-in. (In the event a student is under 18 years of age, and has not been legally emancipated, the student’s parents will also be contacted.)

If a member of the University community has reason to believe that a resident is missing for 24 hours, he/she should immediately notify the Associate Director of Safety and Security at 808-561-3809. The Associate Director of Safety and Security will generate a missing person report and initiate an investigation with the assistance of Residence Life.

Should the Associate Director of Safety and Security determine that the student is missing and has been missing for more than 24 hours, he/she will notify the Honolulu Police Department and the resident’s emergency contact, or the resident’s parents if the resident is under the age of 18 and not legally emancipated, no later than 24 hours after the student is determined to be missing.
