Emergency Management

Emergencies can happen at any time. Northeastern State University is committed to providing a safe academic environment for those that study, work, or visit our campuses. This site was developed to provide the NSU community with a resource in preparing for and in the event of an emergency.

There are a number of potential emergencies that might occur. These include natural disasters (such as floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, ice storms, outbreaks, etc.) and man-made incidents (including explosions, hazardous chemical releases, downed electrical lines, terrorism, etc.). 

To be better prepared for when an emergency occurs; students, faculty, and staff should consider the following:


Develop a Personal/Family Plan that includes emergency contact information and designated meeting places. You can develop your own or use the one provided on the resource page.

Build a Kit

Build a portable kit that you can take with you during an emergency that includes basic items to sustain you for the first hours or days on an incident. Suggested items can be found on the resource page.

Stay Informed


Sign up for the Emergency Alert System that can be delivered to the phones and portable electronic devices.
