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