On Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 12 p.m., the Tulane University Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response, in cooperation with the Tulane University Police Department, will conduct a 5- to 10-minute test of Tulane's outdoor warning sirens and emergency notification system (phone call, text message, and email). These are all part of a communication protocol that we may use in the event of an emergency.
We will be testing the following components of the emergency notification system:
Tulane University has returned to on-ground university operations and academics. All planning for the return to campus has been made in close consultation with CDC/WHO, state and local governmental guidelines, industrial hygienists and public health professionals. Our overriding goal is to promote the safety of our academic community and mitigate the risks associated with COVID-19. Visit our Return to Campus website for more information.
Please consult this Web page for updated information on university operations. Additionally, circumstances permitting, the university will alert faculty, staff and students of threats or emergencies via email, phone and desktop messages. For more information about Tulane employees and students receiving alerts, and also periodic updates for parents, visit Tulane's Emergency Communication Systems website.
