Know where to find emergency information

Your campus home page will always have the most current information in an emergency. You can also check the home page of this site. For general news information, visit the IU News Room.

Get an Emergency Alert Radio

Emergency Alert Radios broadcast emergency and weather information across the campus and have been tested to ensure operation in all IUPUI buildings. Every building warden and academic/staff unit should have one of these radios.

Get a NOAA Weather Radio

The National Weather Service broadcasts official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. But you have to have one of these radios to receive the warnings. For more information visit: Weather radios are available from many manufacturers and typically run $30-$80.

If you have questions on buying a NOAA weather radio, please contact the IU Office of Emergency Management at (317) 274-8152 or
