There may be times when communication on Campus is needed to report or respond to an emergency.  Hope College has several means of communicating in an emergency.  The success of being able to communicate will depend on the circumstances in which these communication systems are used and the volume of calls that are made on them. In the event of a campus-wide emergency, please refrain from using cell phones whenever possible to prevent overloading cellular systems.
