UMaine Crises Plan 

Doctor Robert Dana Dean of Student Affairs at UMaine says the university does have a plan in place to manage multiple crises.

He says the university hopes it never has to use the plan but it anticipates the worst and prepares for it.

Dana says students would be notified of the developing situation immediately either by email or phone the school also has a policy to close the campus down immediately.

Students we talked to today says they feel safe and secure at the Orono campus they also believe the university would take the appropriate actions necessary in the event of a disaster.
