Emergency Preparedness

The information contained in this site provides the OLLU community with guidance to help them prepare for potential emergency situations. Information includes tips and tools on how to avoid or manage an emergency, what actions to take during an emergency and how to stay informed before, during and after an event. 

Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information 

Our Lady of the Lake University has enacted a core group to closely monitor the latest information on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and develop contingency and continuity plans. 

Although there is currently no immediate threat to any of the OLLU campuses, it is important that we all take steps to protect our health, and that we prepare for a variety of contingencies. Recommendations from the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control are monitored closely and procedures will follow the guidance of these and other official organizations.

Emergency Response Team

OLLU has an Emergency Response Team (ERT) that is made up of administrators and staff members from all divisions across campus. The ERT meets regularly to review university policies, procedures and practices related to emergency situations.  

The ERT conducts regular exercises or drills to prepare the team and the university community for potential crises.

Members of the OLLU community are asked to prepare for emergency situations by:

  • Reporting any suspicious activity immediately to campus authorities.
  • Getting acquainted with the procedures to follow in the event of an emergency. 
  • Make sure their contact information is up to date so they will receive notifications during an emergency. Notifications are sent via text, email, telephone speakers (on campus), exterior speaker systems (on the San Antonio campus), and calls to cell and home phone numbers.
