Building Captain + ERT

The goal of the LMU Building Captain & Emergency Reponse Team Program is to ensure that every building on campus has trained staff and/or faculty available to provide safety and emergency preparedness information, as well as response support to the students, staff, and faculty in that location. With the exception of University Hall, one Building Captain is assigned to each non-housing building on campus. In University Hall, there are Building Captains assigned to each floor. Every Building Captain develops an Emergency Response Team (ERT), which is comprised of at least one additional trained staff/faculty member from each floor, wing, department or office suite, depending on the building layout and occupancy. Resident Directors and Resident Advisors serve as the Building Captains and ERT members in campus residence halls.
