Emergency Preparedness and Resources

The health and safety of the NDNU community is our top priority. NDNU is committed toward our Emergency Preparedness Program.

While it is inevitable that natural or human-caused events will negatively affect us in our homes, schools and businesses, careful planning and preparation can reduce or minimize the impact of such incidents. Whether we experience an earthquake, wildfire, power outage or other emergency situation, each of us can take steps now that can help us successfully overcome the crisis. Please follow these links for more information on personal and family preparedness: Governor’s Office of Emergency Services and Ready.gov.

During an emergency that impacts the NDNU campus, Public Safety takes immediate actions to minimize injury, loss of life and property damage. NDNU works in close coordination with local, county, and state emergency services personnel.


As members of one community of Notre Dame de Namur University, we invite our individuals of all faiths to pray with us at this time, at our interfaith prayer services, Taize prayer services, candlelight vigils and especially at our Eucharistic liturgies. As always, all are welcome at Saturday and Sunday masses, but we would like to take this moment to highlight that fact, and invite everyone to pray with us, regardless of religion or creed.
