Emergency Action Plan

The purpose of the Emergency Action Plan is to protect students, employees, and visitors from serious injury, property loss, or loss of life in the event of a major disaster. The plan describes the initial responsibilities and actions to be taken until the appropriate University or municipal responders take over.

Tornado & Fire Warnings

All persons shall evacuate any building on campus when a fire alarm is activated. Emergency evacuation plans are posted inside all buildings.

The campus community shall be notified in the event of a tornado warning that is issued for Floyd County. When a warning is issued all persons on campus should take shelter in designated tornado shelter areas on campus. See the emergency evacuation plans that are posted in a building for designated tornado shelter locations.

Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures

The University Emergency Action Plan includes information about evacuation procedures, assignments and responsibilities and prevention and planning. The University conducts an emergency response exercise each year such as a table top exercise, field exercise and tests of the emergency notification systems on campus. These tests are designed to assess and evaluate the emergency plans and capabilities of the institution.

IU Southeast police officers and supervisors have received training in Incident Command and Responding to Critical Incidents on Campus. When a serious incident occurs that causes an immediate threat to the campus, the first responders to the scene are usually UPD, New Albany PD, Floyd County Sheriff’s Office and the New Albany Fire Department, and they typically respond and work together to manage the incident. Depending on the nature of the incident, other IU Southeast departments and other local or federal agencies could also be involved in responding to the incident.

General information about the emergency response and evacuation procedures for IU Southeast are publicized each year as part of the University’s Clery Act compliance efforts, and detailed information is available on the IU SoutheastPD website:
