Public Safety + University Police oversee the implementation of several university emergency plans. For more information about the emergency plans that we participate in, explore the links below:
Protocol for Initiating Emergency Messaging System
For Hurricane Alerts:
1. When a storm enters the Gulf of Mexico, the Emergency Management Team meets/discusses and potential threat and commences emergency planning procedures.
2. When New Orleans is placed within the storm’s cone of uncertainty, or if a watch or warning is posted for the area, Public Affairs will issue and emergency website posting and send out a campus-wide email notifying the LU community of the potential threat.
3. When it has been determined that New Orleans will be directly affected by the storm, Public Affairs will issue an emergency website posting and send out a campus-wide email notifying the LU community of the situation and will advise them to begin implementing their personal emergency plans. If the decision to evacuate has been made by LU administration, then Public Affairs will issue that statement via all communication vehicles.
