Notice: OLLU conducted a campus-wide active shooter drill on the San Antonio campus, Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017.
During the drill, students, faculty and staff were asked to shelter in place as if a real emergency were taking place. Doors with swipe-card access locked and messages were broadcast through office phones, speakers and via text messages and emails.
During the drill, actual emergency messages were used to simulate a real emergency. The emergency messages were repeated multiple times.
This is the information page for the OLLU Emergency Alert System. In the event of a campus weather or public safety emergency, the OLLU Emergency Alert System will be activated.
The OLLU Emergency Alert System uses voice, text and email messages to alert the OLLU community in the event on an emergency. Messages are sent to cell phones, home phones and University email addresses.
In extremely time-sensitive emergencies, prerecorded messages will be sent out to alert the community that an emergency situation is taking place. The prerecorded messages allow for the fastest activation of the OLLU Emergency Alert System. A prerecorded message will be followed by additional messaging when information is available.
Prerecorded messages fall into three categories:
Public Safety Emergency -- this prerecorded message could be activated for a variety of emergencies including threats from individuals or other situations that might endanger the community.
Weather Emergency -- this prerecorded message would be activated in the event of a rapidly approaching weather-related threat.
Active Shooter -- this prerecorded message would be activated if shots were fired on campus.
When additional information is available, follow-up messages will be sent through some or all of the following channels:
- OLLU social media
- OLLU email system
- OLLU campus phones and speakers
- Updates to this web page
- Additional messages through the OLLU Emergency Alert System -- voice, text and email
