Emergency Preparedness Day at SMU

September 15, 2009

As a part of the Department of Homeland Security’s National Preparedness Month, SMU has designated Wednesday, September 16, 2009, as Emergency Preparedness Day.

The University encourages SMU students, faculty and staff to do the following:

  • Orient yourself to lockdown procedures by viewing the video, “Shots Fired on Campus” video icon.
  • Update your personal contact information, especially your cell phone number, in Access.SMU so you can be notified in the event of an emergency.*
  • Know what to do in emergencies on campus by reviewing the safety actions: Evacuate, Shelter in Place and Lockdown. Look for posters in classrooms or review them online.

*Please Note: A test of the SMU Emergency Notification System will be conducted on September 16.  The test will consist of cell phone messages, text messages and e-mails that read: “This is a test of the SMU Emergency Notification System.”  No action on your part will be necessary.
