LIU Post's Department of Public Safety offers comprehensive services in emergency response and management to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff. Through several initiatives, the Campus is prepared for a wide array of emergency situations, ensuring prompt notification and protection of the Campus community whether the event is commonplace or extraordinary. In the event of emergency, the LIU Post Emergency Notification System is enabled to instantly and simultaneously contact LIU Post students, faculty and staff via Long Island University e-mail, Web site notifications and text messaging to those who register their cell phones with the University. Emergency Building Managers assist Public Safety in disseminating information in their designated building and have been trained in “Evacuation” and “Shelter-in-Place” procedures. LIU Post also employs the use of an outdoor siren warning system, which can be heard throughout the Campus.
Throughout the Fall and Spring semesters, trained Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) respond to on-campus medical emergencies in a timely fashion. The LIU Post Campus also has its own ambulance to shuttle students in need of hospitalization or immediate medical care. An efficient Snow and Emergency School Closings system is in place to ensure our students are informed of closings immediately via the LIU Post homepage, our emergency closings hotline (516-299-EMER), as well as local radio and television stations.
