Response Guides

While it is not always possible to prevent emergencies, we can minimize their impact by following general emergency response guides.

The guidelines provided in this section are intended for general use when preparing for emergencies. Where applicable, links to comprehensive emergency procedures have been provided. It should be noted that while WCMC and NYP have made every effort to make their emergency procedures similar, there are some differences due to each institution’s responsibilities and roles during emergencies.

Should an emergency occur, it is important to stay calm and follow emergency procedures and instructions from responding emergency personnel. With everyone working together, we can overcome the challenges that any emergency presents.
