Emergency Management

Emergency management at Berklee involves a comphrehensive program that allows us to better prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of an emergency or disaster. This website is designed to act as a reference to be used before and during an emergency on or around campus.

Promoting campus safety and emergency preparedness is our primary goal and a responsibility we share with students, faculty, and staff. Are you interested in what you can do to help? See below or contact Berklee's emergency manager, Andrew Murphy, at asmurphy@berklee.edu or 617-747-6825.

Save Emergency Numbers

Save critical numbers at the top of your favorites list in your mobile phone:

  • Boston Police Department: 617-343-4911 or 911

Make a Plan

Do you have a plan in place in case of an emergency? If you have to evacuate a building, where will you go and what will you bring with you?

  • Keys
  • Wallet
  • Identification (government-issued and Berklee ID card)
  • Phone and charger

Always assume you won't be able to get back into the building for a prolonged period of time. For more information, visit Ready.gov.

See Something, Say Something

If you see something suspicious or out of the ordinary on campus, don't hesitate to reach out to the Berklee Public Safety (617-747-8888), or if it's an emergency, contact Boston police (617-343-4911 or 911).
