The following Emergency Preparedness Protocols are suggested for departments to review and implement as appropriate:
Remind all employees that they can download the free HawkWatch personal safety app. All staff, faculty and students are automatically enrolled to receive emergency text messages, but the HawkWatch app offers a number of additional safety features, including links to resources, emergency response plans and direct access to the LUPD in an emergency situation.
Update department emergency contact information and distribute to employees as appropriate. Emergency contact information may include:
Home phone and/or cell phone
Name and home/cell phone number of employee’s emergency contact person
Establish a telephone tree in the event that email communication is interrupted.
