What To Do In Case Of Severe Storms

Immediate Actions:

Severe Winds

The best protection in the event of severe winds is to be in a permanent campus building rather than a modular building. Time permitting, employees and students in temporary structures should be moved to permanent concrete structures.

In the event of a tornado warning:

  1. The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will attempt to issue warning of approaching tornado.
  2. Move everyone out of windowed areas.
  3. Close doors and remain in interior, windowless rooms, hallways, or basements. Await further instructions issued by the Incident Command (IC) Team or other officials.
  4. Insofar as is practicable, Building Managers will follow up on warnings to employees and students by making room-to-room inspections.
