St. Luke & DSU Emergency Management Exercise Today

On Monday, April 29, St. Luke’s Hospital will simulate a catastrophe requiring the hospital’s evacuation. DeSales University serves as an alternate care site should such an incident occur. In order to test the ability of our two institutions to collaborate during a crisis, St. Luke’s staff will establish an alternate care site using the Conference Services portion of the UC to include the entire Reception Gallery. This will not affect dining services, Book Store operations, or access to the Conference Services business suite. However, note:

The UC’s Conference Services section, also known as the Gerald White Pavilion, and the University Center parking lot will be closed to all but emergency vehicles and personnel, SODEXO and Conference Services staff, or disabled persons on Monday, April 29, from 6:30 a.m. until Noon.

DETOUR: Students and employees approaching the UC from the Billera Hall/Lacrosse Stadium side will be detoured to the north entrance at the UC Terrace. Inside travel through the Pavilion to reach Billera Hall and points west will not be possible for the duration of the exercise. Please use the north exit at the UC Terrace to detour the care site. Disabled persons will have unrestricted access. Unrestricted access to the Gerald White Pavilion will resume no later than 1 p.m.

Nursing and PA students and faculty who wish to visit the care site can coordinate with Fr. Plaushin at the emergency management command post in the vicinity of the Heritage Room after 7:30 and before 11:30 a.m. Please approach from the main dining room end of the UC or via the UC Terrace entrance.

Vehicle sirens and emergency signals will be for used emergency management training. Big Voice and e2Campus will be used in the event of an actual emergency. Please follow the directions of University Police, local police, and St. Luke Hospital’s security officers.
