The Brooklyn Campus, Department of Public Safety offers comprehensive services in emergency response and management to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff. Through several initiatives, the Campus is prepared for a wide array of emergency situations, ensuring prompt notification and protection of the Campus community whether the event is commonplace or extraordinary. In the event of emergency, the Brooklyn Campus Emergency Notification System is enabled to instantly and simultaneously contact Brooklyn Campus students, faculty and staff via Long Island University e-mail, Web site notifications and text messaging to those who register their cell phones with the University. Emergency Building Managers assist Public Safety in disseminating information in their designated building and have been trained in “Evacuation” and “Shelter-in-Place” procedures. Brooklyn Campus employs the use of an outdoor siren warning system.
An efficient Snow and Emergency School Closings system is in place to ensure our students are informed of closings immediately via the Brooklyn homepage, our emergency closings hotline (718-488-1000 or 718-488-1078), as well as local radio and television stations.
