The university issues two types of safety bulletins: advisories and alerts. See the detailed descriptions and examples below.
Advisories are timely notifications of potential emergency (safety, criminal, health, hazardous weather) activity on or near campus where the threat is NOT immediate or life-threatening.
Methods of Distribution:
NIU Safety Bulletin - Example:Report of an armed robbery in DeKalb
Alerts are used to distribute urgent information regarding emergencies that dictate immediate action because they present an imminent threat to the lives and safety of the general campus population.
Emergency Campus Alert Example:
