SAFETY WARDEN PROGRAM
The Safety Warden Program, coordinated by The Office of Emergency Management in cooperation with Building Managers, Environmental Health & Safety, Fire Marshals, and University Police Officers, is part of a comprehensive Emergency Management effort that addresses the safety and security concerns of the Stony Brook campus during an emergency.
Ready to Respond
Safety Wardens are volunteers who assist with communications, evacuation, and coordination of people during emergencies. Safety warden teams are organized by building; building managers serve as building emergency coordinators.
Safety wardens are provided training on their local building emergency plan that identifies and addresses specific hazards, fire alarm signals, evacuation and Shelter-In-Place procedures for a particular building. Upon completion of training, these emergency volunteers receive Safety Warden vests for identification, certificates of training and other vital equipment.
To volunteer for the program, please contact Emergency Management at 632-3046.
