Main Campus Emergency Response Practice Drill, March 31


NSU will be engaging in its annual main campus Emergency Response Practice Drill to test several components of our ability to identify, respond to, and notify the NSU community about an emergency on campus.

The Emergency Response Practice Drill will take place on Tuesday, March 31 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the NSU’s University School Sonken Building. Prior to the Practice Drill, we will be testing several components of NSU’s and the surrounding community’s emergency response capabilities beginning at 2 p.m.

This training exercise will not require the closing of any other locations on the main campus. While police and other first responder activity will be seen by pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the immediate University School area, most regular activity will not be impacted by this Practice Drill.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Office of Public Safety at (954) 262-8999.
