Emergency Preparedness and Notification

Rutgers’ Office of Emergency Management works with neighboring police departments, local governments, the State of New Jersey, and the National Guard in mutual-aid partnerships and regularly conducts exercises designed to better prepare the university for any kind of emergency or disaster. The university’s emergency notification system provides time-critical information to the Rutgers community.
