Emerging Inclement weather conditions are monitored by University Safety Personnel. Students are encouraged to plan ahead for their evacuation plans in the event of a hurricane nearing New Orleans. While limited spaces are available within the University evacuation protocols, students who do have available resources to evacuate with family and friends are encouraged to do so. Campus evacuations and closures will be communicated thru the university email and text alert services.
EARLY WARNING SYSTEM
The campus Early Warning System is designed to provide instant notification to students, faculty, and staff of imminent dangerous conditions.
In an emergency, sirens around campus will sound continuously for at least three minutes.
If you ever hear the Early Warning siren:
- If in your residence hall or apartment, stay inside/in your room, and seek information from university alerts.
- If outdoors, seek shelter inside the closest building.
- When danger has passed, a single 30-second siren blast will sound.
TEXT & EMAIL ALERTS
Another means of notification is available to those who subscribe to an alert system that sends text messages, in an emergency, to your email, mobile phone, pager, or other text-enabled device. Use the link below to register your device.
