Emergency Preparedness at AU:
The detailed emergency preparedness plan provides notification instructions and operating procedures in the event of an emergency. The plan is reviewed and updated regularly by representatives from a cross-section of university departments.
Take the first step: Customize your AU Alerts
In an emergency, AU will use the communication tools the university has at its disposal in as timely a manner as possible using AU Alerts. These messages will provide information on what is happening, what to do, and links to available additional information.
Our communication tools include text and email alerts, the university's home page, Facebook, and Twitter, the general information line 202-885-1100, indoor yellow AlertUs emergency beacon boxes and outdoor speakers located throughout campus.
You can customize whether you receive alerts as e-mail and/or text messages. Add additional work or home phone numbers and e-mail addresses so AU Alerts reach you no matter where you are when an emergency occurs.
