Emergency Preparedness Plan

Southern University at New Orleans has established emergency preparedness guidelines for students, faculty, and staff to follow so that the effects of emergency situations can be minimized.

In order to stay informed in the event of an emergency, the University suggests the follow course of action:

  1. Sign up for the SUNO Text Alert System to receive emergency messages.
  2. Become a friend of SUNO on Facebook at sunoknights56 or follow SUNO on Twitter at sunoknights. Those sites will be updated throughout the weekend.
  3. Review personal emergency preparedness plans. Great preparation suggestions can be found on the web site of the Governor's Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness.
  4. Monitor television, radio, and internet outlets for SUNO updates.
