BATON ROUGE - LSU will conduct a full-scale campus emergency exercise on May 20 to ensure the campus and public safety agencies can effectively respond in the event of an emergency.

An LSU spokesperson said the simulation would include assistance from local, state, and federal law enforcement as well as nearby hospitals.

The event will occur on May 20 at 6 p.m. near central campus and the university asks that the general public avoid the area during that time.

LSUPD said they will close Dalrymple Drive between Infirmary Lane and the Indian Mound and Peabody Hall Lots at around 5:15 p.m.

Persons exiting the Indian Mound/Peabody Lots will be required to turn west during the time of closure but may continue to exit throughout the event. Persons parked in the Thomas Boyd Lot will also be able to exit but will be required to turn east after the time of closure.

LSU Police requests that anyone parked in the Thomas Boyd Lot accessible from the Middleton Library service drive exit the lot prior to 5:15 p.m.

When the exercise begins at 6 p.m., LSUPD said they cannot ensure passage from the lot to Dalrymple Drive as multiple agencies will respond to the scene.

Those with questions regarding street and lot closures or the exercise itself can contact LSUPD at (225) 578-3231, visit their website, or contact LSU Police Department on Facebook.
