Duke’s University’s Office of News and Communications (ONC) launched this emergency website on Wednesday afternoon, May 14, 2008, following the accident at the LSRC. This is the first time ONC used the site, which it created several months earlier to enhance Duke’s tools for communicating with students, employees and others during an emergency.

Later today, we plan to archive the material that appears here, freeing up the site for possible use in a future emergency. Before we do, we welcome your feedback about whether you’ve found the site useful and your suggestions about how we might improve it. Please send your comments to
