From normal operations (green) to full emergency conditions (red)
Campus emergency status is based on conditions that the campus is experiencing or expecting. The levels include green for normal operations; yellow for an active emergency that does not affect the overall operations of a campus; orange, for incidents causing significant damage or disruption to campus; and red, which indicates a situation that could involve multiple fatalities or severe property damage.
Based on the circumstances, alert notifications will be sent when necessary. Also, conditions other than normal will be posted on the homepage for each campus. The Protect IU website displays the current campus emergency status for each campus at all times. Here, more information about the campus status is available by clicking on the status color bar.
A more detailed explanation of the status levels is below.
