Emergency preparedness is an ongoing concern at Indiana University Kokomo. The purpose of this Web page is to guide members of the IU Kokomo community in case of emergency. Please become familiar with this resource as it could be useful to you if the need arises.

Safety of our community is of primary importance. Although we have no information indicating any threats, emergency plans are in place. The staff is also in regular contact with local authorities regarding emergency preparedness and other issues related to public safety. 

Should an emergency occur, IU Kokomo staff, local law enforcement and other officials are prepared to put our emergency plans into action.  A central emergency operations center would coordinate the management of any incident that occurs on or near the campus. This Web site and other public media outlets would be utilized to keep you informed about the nature of any emergency situation.

IU-Notify will be used to inform the campus of an emergency situation. Please note that you must sign-up and keep your information current to receive alerts via IU-Notify. To do this:
