Emergency Response Guide

Message from President Freeman

At NIU, we pride ourselves on our emergency preparedness.

It is woven into the fabric of day-to-day life on campus, such as the extensive training opportunities in emergency response skills like basic life support (CPR) and first aid.

However, there are things that all of us can do to better prepare for emergencies so that when they arise we are all prepared to react quickly and effectively.

The university’s Emergency Response Guide provides basic information and recommended responses to a wide array of potential emergencies. I am asking all supervisors to print out this guide, review its content with employees and fill out the sections that pertain to the specific building concerning your department.

Thorough review and complete information are keys to effective emergency planning at all levels, and I ask that all employees take this task seriously.

Thank you for contributing your time and effort to helping make NIU a safe and secure campus.
